Nutty & sumptuous, this recipe using wonderful quinoa instead of rice as commonly used in Jollof Rice is a true delight. This is one of my absolute favourites, eaten as a salad with mixed leaves, with a roast or as a vegetable stuffing. A great substitute is couscous or fonio, but couscous is much lighter and absorbs liquids in a different way. Whatever you can do or eat with rice, you certainly can with quinoa. You just might prefer it! See the recipe in my Guardian ng column and do share how you get on. https://guardian.ng/features/food-and-drinks/leratos-jollof-quinoa-for-easter/ I also shared this recipe with spiced broccoli, cod baked with grains of paradise in an interview with the BBC.
