Food 🍲 Inspo 7: Easy Plantain Porridge


This is an easy to-do meal, and I served it for breakfast this morning.
It was supposed to be fried plantain and vegetable sauce, but I just mixed everything together to see how it would go. It turned out really well. Aside mixing the plantain and sauce together, I tweaked a few of the regular details, like cutting the plantain in round, small shapes and instead of long pyramid-like shapes.

Sliced plantain, ugu leaves, fresh to tomatoes, pepper, sliced onion, a cube of Mr. Chef seasoning, cinnamon and jollof spice
