West African Food & Recipes

My yummy medley (see what I did there?) of the best West African food &  recipes featuring dishes from Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Cameroon and more! I have a special love for West African cuisine, which in my opinion boasts some of, if not the tastiest dishes on the continent! This collection highlights popular West African food staples like jollof spaghetti, spicy peanut/groundnut stews, thieboudienne and moi moi or akara to more niche and native meals such as beniseed soup, fonio cereal/acha pudding, edikaikong soup or miyan taushe. Discover cooking tips, nutrition information and how to make healthy meals, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options (yes they exist!), drinks and native delicacies with powerful flavors, lots of spice and plenty of heart!
