Guinea Fowl Tomato stew

1 Guinea Fowl (Cut into parts)
1 medium sized Onion, chopped
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon Ginger
1 teaspoon black pepper
4 Garlic cloves, minced
1 Seasoning Cubes
Salt to taste

7 medium plum Tomatoes
1 medium Red bell pepper
1 Onion
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 Seasoning Cubes
Pinch of baking Soda
4 Scotch Bonnet

Wash the Guinea Fowl severally with clean water. Add the chopped onion, Crushed seasoning and Salt to taste. Pour in just enough water to cover the content of the pot. Cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes or until the Guinea Fowl is cooked. Fry and Set the pot aside. Strain the stock and set aside.

Blend Tomatoes, bell pepper and Onion until smooth. Strain the mixture and add 1 cup of water (and the stock as needed). Add the tomato paste and vegetable oil.Cook for about 5 mins. Make sure you stir once in a while to prevent the paste from burning.

Add the baking soda, cube and scotch bonnet and cook for 5 mins.
Add the Guinea Fowl. Stir and leave to cook further for 10 -15 minutes on medium heat.
Turn off the burner and serve as a compliment to dishes such as akoumè, rice, yam, potatoes, bread, plantain.

Plain Okra soup

10 medium Okra – Mine was precut and frozen.
1 cup Stock (Chicken/Beef/Fish or a mixture) – I used the Guinea Fowl stock
1 cup smoked fish (Doèvi) + 1 Garlic cloves, minced
1/2 Onion sliced
1 cup of spinach chopped
2 Scotch Bonnet
10 shrimps, cleaned
1 Seasoning Cube
Salt to taste
Wash the Okra with clean water. With a grater, Grate the Okra. Grating okra makes it “draw” more unlike when you chop it with a knife.
Boil 4 cups of water and the stock and add the smoked fish (until soft).

Add the okra seasoning cubes and salt to taste.

Add the shrimp and leave to cook on medium heat for 10 minutes (The longer you cook it the less slumy it becomes – I cooked mine for 30 mins)

Serve with akoumè.
