Native Jollof Rice or Iwuk Edesi is a delicious ...
When I say this is an insanely delicious vegetable yam porridge, you have got to trust me on this one. Now is it porridge or pottage? that I cannot answer?. I grew up calling dishes made this way porridge so I will like to stick to that. I have tried to find out the meaning of both to be able to differentiate, but I have got myself even more confused than ever. I decided to stick to what my childhood memories tell me, which is porridge. Feel free to call it pottage.
<<<<<<< ntioned in my previous post on yam porridge, this was one of the first dishes I perfected in as a 9 year old. This recipe is basically the same thing but with addition of green vegetables. My point for making this post is to give you a visual feel of this recipe and for the love of variety.
<<<<<<< back story here. Yesterday my kiddos resumed and I promised to do the happy dance. I actually did a little of my happy dance but in the Next few minutes we were missing them so much (my 2 yr old and I) we couldn't wait to go get them. Guess what? That's life.... we should love, enjoy and cherish every moment spent with loved ones. They sure did drive me crazy this summer but secretly I loved every bit of it and l wouldn't change a thing. I am grateful.❤️
it's time we get to the kitchen to start making this delicious dish a reality. Pottage? Or Porridge?? You tell me. Have you got your free eCookbook yet, grab your copy here. It's FriYay so you can make any dish you wish from the book. Have a blessed weekend.
