Homemade Cassava Flour Pasta

This recipe goes out to all my gluten-free friends out there. It also goes out to any chef or home cook who loves to experiment with different ingredients.

Cassava flour is made from nutrient-rich cassava tubers that have been washed, sun-dried and milled into fine flour. It is a staple in many African countries, often used to make fufu. However, in this week's video I use it to make my very own gluten-free pasta. The recipe is easy, delicious and worth a try!

To make your own homemade pasta, you'll need cassava flour, ground flax seeds and water. That simple. Check out the video below to see all the steps I took:

Guinea Corn Porridge | Red Ogi

Hello wonderful people,

I've officially switched my YouTube upload days to Sundays, so here I am with yet another recipe video. This time sharing how I prepared this nutritious bowl of guinea corn porridge. Back in 2014, I shared a recipe for ogi (also known as akamu or pap), which is a corn-based porridge made using white or yellow maize. This dish falls under the same family, except here we have a bowl of gorgeous coral pink.

Guinea corn is an ancient grain that is packed with a lot of goodness. It is a great source of calcium and iron, and it is high in fibre and protein. Nowadays, you can buy guinea corn flour online from your local African food store (if you're not based in Nigeria). Whipping it up into a porridge is easy as pie, as you'll see in the video below.

You can have it plain or sweetened. You can top it with fruits, seeds and nuts to add some texture and sneak in more nutrients. You can serve it with a side of moin moin or akara. Any which way, it is delicious and sure to hit the spot.

Have a great week, and see you next Sunday with another videooo :)
