Garden Egg – Ugba Sauce with New Yam

This is a simple but beautiful sauce – one simply takes pureed garden eggs (raw, roasted, fired, smoked) and combines them with shreds of Ugba – fermented oil bean.

Ugba has such a beautiful, chewy but crunchy somewhat resistant-to-being-eaten-quickly quality that’s perfect for the slight bitterness and earthiness of the garden eggs. One that makes a beautifully rich sauce for new yam.

Ingredients
  1. Garden eggs (a dozen or so, blended yields about 1 1/2 cups)
  2. 1 medium-sized red onion, roughly chopped
  3. 1 cup Ugba
  4. 2 to 3 tablespoons palm oil
  5. Ground crayfish, to taste
  6. Salt, to taste
  7. 1 cup tomato mixture (blended tomato, onions, chilli pepper)
  8. 6 pieces of smoked fish
Instructions
  1. Blend the garden eggs, onion and half of the ugba with a cup of water
  2. In a pot or pan, heat up the palm oil
  3. Add the blended garden egg mixture, some crayfish and salt then let it cook on low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring every few minutes
  4. Then add the blended tomato mixture, the rest of the Ugba (1/2 cup), some chili pepper (To taste) and smoked fish
  5. Stir well, then add some water - to taste to loosen sauce. Adjust seasoning and leave to simmer for 5 - 10 minutes
  6. Finish by topping with Utazi - a bitter green or scent leaves and serve with boiled yam and plantains
Notes
  1. I oven-roasted my garden eggs because the oven was on at the same time - using it 'raw' also works.
