This classic egg stew recipe has been a favourite in my home since I was a child. As simple as this recipe may sound, it is absolutely delicious and is perfect served with some boiled yam and plantain after a long day. The stew is completely vegetarian yet high in protein and provides a tasty break from a meat-filled day, thus perfect for meat-free Mondays perhaps?! Nothing beats this warm, comforting cooked meal especially on a cold winter’s day. So without further ado, here’s the recipe!
