I get quite a lot of e-mails from readers asking where to find specific ingredients or appliances that I've used in creating some of my dishes. With that in mind, I've incorporated an online store (courtesy of Amazon - you will need an Amazon account btw) into the website, which I hope you will find useful and convenient.

I've hand-picked a selection of food items that I use fairly regularly - beans, rice, almond milk, peanut butter, egusi etc, along with other items that you're guaranteed to find in the [vegan-friendly] Nigerian kitchen. It's basically a one-stop place to find your kitchen cupboard/fridge essentials. I'll keep adding to the inventory as time goes on.

Aside from food, you'll also find some kitchen items, such as the amazing julienne peeler I used for my "Vegetable Spaghetti" recipe, and regular ol' blenders for whizzing up those smoothies or making a batch of red pepper mix.

Lastly, there are sections for Books, DVDs and other fun miscellaneous items. The books and DVDs in particular are resources that have personally helped me along my vegan journey. Guides, recipe books and hard-hitting documentaries that explain why veganism makes sense ;)

Just scoot on over to the 'Shop' tab at the top of the page and take a look. Got any product suggestions? Get in touch! (vegannigerian@gmail.com)

Happy browsing!


  1. Congrats on the store opening...I will definitely check it out


  2. Hi, I used some of your recipes as inspiration for a post on my blog -- am I alright to give you credit and link back to this site?

    1. This is the post that includes references to your site: http://but-what-do-vegans-eat.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/nigerian-cooking.html

      If you don't like how I've done it, or don't want your site associated with the food I made (which I could understand!) then just let me know :)

    2. Hi Laura, I don't mind at all! :) In fact, it's quite exciting that some of the recipes on here have served as inspiration. Thanks for linking back. Feel free to share your blog link on the Facebook page too (facebook.com/VeganNigerian). I like the look of your 'plantain and ejike gravy' - will have to try that at some point! :)
