Red Red – Ghanaian Black Eyed Beans Stew

Believe it or not, I used to hate beans. It was only until a year and a half ago (when I gave up meat) that I started to eat more beans and pulses. It was then that I realised they aren’t so bad. Red Red is a traditional Ghanaian stew made with black eyed beans…

Barcelona Eats: Part 3

My favourite part of the trip took place in La Boqueria. This place was food heaven for me. There are a variety of market stalls there from meat, seafood, vegetables and fruit. Lots of fruit. I went to La Boqueria on two occasions. On the first day, I tried the fresh fruits, fruit juice and…

I’ve also booked a cheeky day trip to Amsterdam, so expect some posts about the experience soon. Now, for this week’s recipe… If you’re looking…

Bulgur Wheat Jollof

The first time I had bulgur wheat was in Kervan Sofrasi two or three years ago – a Turkish restaurant in North London. The way they had cooked it reminded me of jollof rice, since it was orange in colour. It was a great alternative to eating rice. As some of you may know, making…
