From Ugep with More Love: Yam Mash & Yedamblongh

by Kitchen Butterflyon April 19, 2017
As I ate Yedamblongh,  I kept thinking of how  perfectly it would go with yam mash… And so I got making some. I simply boiled yam and pureed it with a touch of water. I’ve made yam mash/ puree before so this was no newbie or biggie. In the past, I’ve added a touch of […]

From Ugep With Love: Yedamblongh or Okana w. Kola Nut

by Kitchen Butterflyon March 21, 2017
Have you ever eaten kola nut with a pepper sauce? No? Me neither…till now. And I have to thank Carol of Bread & Baskets for this introduction.  A few weeks ago, I toasted some Nigerian calabash nutmeg, Ehuru and shared a photo on instagram. Wofai sent me a message saying that where she was from – Ugep […]

Garden Egg – Ugba Sauce with New Yam

by Kitchen Butterflyon August 31, 2015
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 […]

Garden Egg Bake with Cheese & Sugo

by Kitchen Butterflyon November 8, 2014
And on and on and on – Part 2 of the Baked Garri-crusted Garden Eggs. It involves a bake. Ideally, I would have like this to feature the baked garden eggs, a spicy sauce and Wara, locally produced cheese. Well, though I didn’t meet the ultimate test in my head, the end result was pretty […]

Nigerian Small Chops: Baked Garri-crusted Garden Eggs

by Kitchen Butterflyon November 7, 2014
I am fascinated by how ideas come, how they’re created – so many elements, some seemingly random, yet they come together to test concepts, fuse thoughts and generally do something ‘new’. Like with garden eggs. I think I like the whole exploration, the journey, the process of building, of constructing, of putting together. I like […]

Things to do with Garden Eggs

by Kitchen Butterflyon October 23, 2013
The long-promised round up of garden egg posts. Delayed by a serious bout of the ‘flu which kept me off work, off play and unable to present the compilation when I planned. I’m still a bit weak. Only a few more additions to the pickles, and chutneys and sauces. I ‘made’ a new chutney from […]

The Vibrant: Garden Eggs with Crushed Peanuts, Red Chilies & Cilantro

by Kitchen Butterflyon October 15, 2013
This recipe takes me back to where it all began – Nigeria. Where garden eggs are eaten as a snack, with a spicy peanut butter dip. In this recipe, the garden egg is sliced and garnished with grilled spring onions and red chilies, for colour. It is sprinkled with a dry peanut ‘crunch’ and drizzled […]

The Easy: Quick Pickled Garden Egg Slices

by Kitchen Butterflyon October 14, 2013
In this recipe, the spongy character of garden eggs are extolled. Its interesting that garden eggs take very well to pickling. The vinegar and spices add another dimension to a fruit that makes it suitable for a myriad of things – eating on its own, layered in a sandwich or chopped up into a salad. […]
