Jollof Chicken and Pasta Casserole

1 Mins read

Is there anyway besides rice to have Jollof? I don’t know who needs to hear this but ‘Jollof’ is not an accompanying keyword for rice only. You can have most savoury meals jollof style. So what is ‘Jollof’? Jollof is simply a cooked paste made from a combination of onions, fresh tomatoes and/or tomato paste and chillis (scotch bonets). These are blended together and cooked in oil for about 5-10 mins. The paste should look something like this:

Now this would look different is you blended all your ingredients as opposed to chopping them up like above. This jollof Casserole is just every bit of warm, spicy and holiday table ready. Just enough spice and heat to warm you up and taste for a complete meal.

For a vegan option, replace the sherreded chicken with some chopped oyster mushrooms and it is just perfect to go as is.
