How to Cook Easy and Healthy Jollof/Veggie Spaghetti

Hey guys! I hope you are having a great Sunday. Today’s Sunday Funday Recipe is one that I’ve been working on for some time now, and I take full credit of it. If you like vegan meals, or, Jollof Rice you might love this very easy to make Spaghetti. I’ll let you in on a secret, it’s completely meatless. So, if you’re on a meatless diet, this meal is also for you.

½ of the Golden Penny spaghetti.
4 Very Big Carrots.
½ of a Big Cauliflower Plant.

½ of a medium bowl of well chopped Red Onions.
½ of a medium bowl Green Peas.
1 small cup of Power Oil.
3 moderate spoons of well ground dried crayfish.
3 Cubes of Maggi Seasoning.
3 Spoons of Salt.
2 small Spoons of Yaji Suya spice.
½ Satchet of Onga Seasoning Stew Spice.
A Grater.

Gently Wash the Cauliflower. Wash the Peas and Carrots as well. Grate the Cauliflower and 2 carrots. Then, Chop up the remaining 2 carrots as well. 

In a clean medium pot pour in water and bring to a boil. Add the washed clean peas, after 5 minutes scoop them out and place in a sieve. Then, add the spaghetti to the already boiling water, and leave it to boil for 20 Minutes.

Pour out the spaghetti and water into a sieve to strain out the water. Wash the spaghetti with clean cold water and leave it in the sieve.

Pour out the groundnut oil into a clean waterless pot add the chopped red onions, carrots and cauliflower, and place on high heat for 10 minutes while stirring to avoid burning it.

Add your yaji spice, salt to taste, ground crayfish, maggi, and onga spice. Add your green peas last after stirring the veggies for a while (10 minutes). Time to add your spaghetti. Mix it for a while with the veggies, while on high heat. You can choose to add a little water and let it simmer a bit. Personally, after mixing and letting it heat up a little I bring down my pot and serve. I don’t add water to it anymore. And no, it doesn’t burn. I closely monitor it to avoid that.

Enjoy your meal. Who else is excited that Bassey and Bisola got saved in the 2017 Big Brother Naija? I don’t watch it every day, only on Sundays to see who gets evicted. OMG! I almost died now you guys! Jon Ogah is the fake housemate. Remember the first big brother Naija, when Ebuka was a housemate and they introduced Katung? Urgh you probably didn’t watch it don’t mind me. When I heard the name of the second fake housemate Ese, I was like what? Is Ese Walters a beauty queen? Then they called out her surname. Sadly, I don’t know her. Chaii..let’s see who she is.

Bisola is definitely thinking who is this again?

In other news, I really like that Payporte theme song (it’s good for dancing Shoki you should try it and see what I mean).

It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria , but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds. Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select ) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discuss

My mother's people have a saying that the best time to find out if a woman is truly beautiful is during the harmattan season,  because you'll get to see her real skin/true beauty. Happy new month guys! It's that time of the year again when we begin to think of how best to stop our skin from drying out and breaking. You might find this post helpful if you plan on coming to Nigeria/west Africa between November-February. Click to Follow Me on Bloglovin People in other parts of the world go through winter, West Africans go through the dry and most times unforgiving harmattan. Regardless, the dry season as it is generally called is my favourite season. From dry skin to dusty looking skin to severe cases of broken skin with sores, if you have lived/live in Nigeria then you most likely have a harmattan skin story. To prepare your skin for this period, it's best you review your beauty regimen and find out what works best for you, and check in with your dermatologist if
