You did read that right, I made Jollof rice using carrot as a main ingredient. Not as an accompaniment or even garnish, but first let me tell you about how I subconsciously survived 1 whole month without Jollof rice…
To be honest, that’s a story I can’t tell because it still baffles me.
Once I realised how long ago it was that I last had a taste of this sumptuous delicacy, I made a promise to myself that I must “chop Jollof” before the week ends. I didn’t just get to eat some Jollof, well not the Jollof I’ve been accustomed to but I made something different.
In this recipe I used carrots as a replacement for tomatoes because I didn’t have enough tomatoes to make a small pot of Jollof rice. Surprisingly to my delight, this rice turned out better than any Jollof I’ve ever tasted. It was, to simply put, DELICIOUS.
Here’s the recipe:
This is one meal I am sure everyone will enjoy. It’s rather quick and easy compared to the typical Jollof rice preparation method.
Try it. Enjoy it. Xx
