SEASONED UGWU - (Easy side dish)

Monday, June 27, 2016

 I know cooking can be a lot of work especially when you don't have a choice like when you have a family dependent on you for breakfast,lunch or dinner.So there are times I'm so tired to cook and I just do something easy and almost plain I start to feel guilty.I remembered when I made noodles that I could add some vegetable on the side.I haven't had this anywhere so I don't know if people make it but let me share how I make mine.

INGREDIENTS
Pumpkin leaves or Ugwu
Onions
Pepper(red or cameroon)
Salt
Maggi
Groundnut oil
Crayfish

PROCEDURE

 I had this ugwu left over from soup I cooked.
  You will need very little oil just to make it glide smoothly.I did not use as much as you're seeing in the photo.
  Crayfish,pepper,salt and maggi(I used about a quarter of the cube).This is very dependent on the quantity of vegetable.

  The first thing is to put your onions in water and let it boil.
 Once it's boiled pour in all the other ingredients and leave to boil for about a minute or 2.
 Your ugwu goes in next and then drizzle a little amount of oil on it and stir.
Take off fire immediately and it's ready!


This was how I had mine.It's a lazy way of getting more nutrition from your meals.

Have you made this before or have you had it somewhere?
What's your lazy nutritional recipe/meal?

  1. I don't think I've made anything like this but this looks yummy. Crayfish, pepper and onions in vegetable? Yes! Green leafy vegetables are so healthy and the good thing is they are easy to find and are mostly affordable. That's a nice side dish, Cheechee!
