HEALTH BENEFIT OFADA STEW
Despite not being the healthiest dish, ofada stew is incredibly delicious. This recipe is a healthier version with very little oil, no bleaching and no animal fat. The recipe includes oyster mushrooms and garden eggs (a white variety of eggplant) for the chunky texture. Garden eggs are a highly nutritious food, rich in potassium, B-vitamins and trace minerals. They also have a very neutral flavour – like mushrooms, they act like a sponge and easily take on the flavours of whatever dish you incorporate them in. As they have a very high water content, I baked them to dry out some of that water before adding to the stew.
