Leafy Jollof Rice

Published

on

Ingredients

For the Leafy Jollof Rice in the video below, I used:

350g (0.8 lbs) long grain parboiled rice
300 mls Tomato Stew
1kg (2.2 lbs) goat meat
2 handfuls spinach
1 medium onion
2 small stock cubes
Habanero pepper (to taste)
Salt (to taste)
2 tablespoons crayfish

Notes about the ingredients

Other vegetables you can use: Ugu (Nigerian Pumpkin leaves), scent leaves or Green Amaranth.
Other meats you can use: chicken, lamb, beef. When using chicken, skip crayfish and add thyme when seasoning the chicken.
Habanero pepper is atarodo, atarugu or ose oyibo.
Before you cook the Leafy Jollof Rice

Prepare the tomato stew. Visit the Tomato Stew page for details on how to do that. It is advisable to prepare tomato stew before hand and keep in the freezer. This is so that whenever you want to cook any jollof rice related dish, it is just a matter of adding it to your cooking.
Parboil the rice using the method detailed in parboiling rice for cooking jollof rice. Rinse the parboiled rice with cool water and put in a sieve to drain.
Pound the habanero pepper.
Grind the crayfish.
Wash and cut the leafy vegetables.
Dice the onion.

Cooking Directions

Cook the goat meat with the stock cubes and half of the diced onions.
When done, separate the goat meat from the goat meat stock and grill the meat in the oven. You can also deep-fry them.
Pour the goat meat stock into a sizeable pot.
Add the crayfish, some of the tomato stew and some salt. Stir, cover and start cooking on medium heat.
When it boils, add the drained parboiled rice and stir. The water level should be at the same level as the rice. This is to ensure that by the time all the water dries up, the rice will be done and there will be no need to add more water. You will need to parboil the rice correctly for this to happen.
Cover the pot and leave to cook on low to medium heat. This way the rice does not burn before the water dries up.
When you can no longer see the water (but the water is not yet dry), add the remaining onions and tomato stew. Cover and continue cooking till all the water dries up.
If you parboiled the rice correctly, the rice should be done by the time the water is dry. Taste to confirm. If not, you will need to add more water and reduce the heat to prevent burning. Keep cooking till done.
When dry, add the leafy vegetables, stir very well without squashing the rice and take it off the stove immediately.

on

By

Step 1: Set up
Gather your ingredients for the seven vegetable couscous made in honour of Algeria’s opening World Cup game against Belgium.

Serves 4-6 hands

60ml olive oil
2 onions, chopped
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric
5 tomatoes
4 carrots, peeled and chopped into 3cm chunks
2 turnips, peeled and chopped into 3cm chunks
1/2 head of cabbage, chopped into 3cm pieces
470ml water plus 1400ml boiling water
2 Courgette (zucchini), chopped into 3cm chunks
1 squash butternut, peeled and chopped into – 3cm chunks
240g (1 can) chickpeas, drained
Salt and pepper to season
1 bunch of coriander, chopped
200g couscous

7 vegetable couscous – Algeria
Algeria didn’t reach full satisfaction against Belgium in their World Cup battle; putting up a well-organised fight, they lacked the final punch, much like this seven vegetable couscous (full disclosure!).

There are 11 steps and 11 pictures in the reppic – Epic Recipe in Pictures – to make this very simple, super-tasty vegetable couscous full of nutrition and goodness.

Full disclosure – this recipe, though easy to pull together for those in a rush, lacked the full depth and punch to do justice to Maghreb cuisine, needing fuller-tasting ingredients and spices to win this game, always going to be a tough one against the land of gourmet that is Belgium.

If you don’t want to take our word for it, give it a shot and let us know what you think, or better still, advise on any better recipe you know of in the comments .

Approximate time 50 minutes to 1 hour -10 minutes preparing the vegetables and 40- 50 minutes cooking time.

Published

on

By

Ingredients
4 boneless white-fleshed fish fillets, 6 to 8 ounces each (such as whitefish or tilapia)
3 fresh juice tablespoons from about 3 limes, plus more to taste
Kosher salt
4 1/2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
3 cups fresh corn kernels, from about 4 ears corn
3 cups Sun Gold tomatoes, quartered
1 to 2 jalapeños, stemmed, seeded, chopped (about 3 tablespoons)
1/2 large white onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
2 medium garlic cloves, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
Handful fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons butter
Directions
1.
Place fish fillets on a rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of lime juice and a couple pinches of salt. Set aside for at least 30 minutes.

2.
Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of canola oil in a 12-inch non-stick skillet over high heat until shimmering. Add corn kernels, toss well with a wooden spoon, and then spread evenly out. Cook until starting to char on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Stir well, and cook until corn starts to char again, another 2 minutes. Continue process until corn is evenly charred on all sides but not burnt, 8 to 10 minutes total. Transfer corn to a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, jalapeños, onion, garlic, cilantro, and remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice. Season with salt to taste. Add additional lime juice as necessary. Set aside.

3.
Dry fish fillets on paper towels. Use a fork to mix together flour and a 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt in a large baking dish. Wipe out skillet and return to medium heat. Add butter and heat until melted. Dredge two fish fillets in the flour, shake off the excess, and then carefully place them in the skillet skin-side down. Cook until golden brown on the bottom, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and brown on the other side, another 3 to 4 minutes. When both sides are browned and fish is cooked through, drain the fillets on a paper towel-lined plate and keep warm. Repeat process with the remaining 2 fillets.

4.
Serve the fried fish with the corn salsa.
