Plantain and scent leaf porridge

Plantain and scent leaf porridge

Most of my meals are fast, fresh, healthy and of course weight loss oriented. Probably because i’m a market woman at lagos island. You leave home early, come back late. No time to ask time. I don’t want to come home and spend several hours again in the kitchen.

This is one recipe you can whip up in less than 30mins.

Ingredients for Plantain and scent leaf porridge:

3-4 unripe plantain

1 ripe plantain

3pcs dryfish

2tbsp crayfish

2 handful ugu or green of your choice

1 handful scent leaf

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp seasoning

1 large onion

1tsp grated ginger

1 cup ugba or substitute with 1/2 cup locust beans

1tsp turmeric

1tbsp black pepper


Peel and dice plantain. Put into pot of water, add every other ingredient apart from veggies and leave to boil. It should take roughly 15mins to get it boiling.

Wash and cut up the vegetables, add to the boilng plantain and stir. Taste for salt and seasoning and adjust accordingly. Cover for a minute or 2 and bring down from fire.

My people, food is ready.
