Join West African Plant-Based Chef, founder of Uziiza and Vegan Melanated Magazine, Duchess Nena, for this special class learning to make a veganised version of Nigerian celebration dish Moin Moin served with Green Fry and Soaked Garri to drink.
Moin Moin is a steamed savoury pudding make from black-eyed beans, served beautifully wrapped in an itere leaf and is often eaten at celebrations and parties. The traditional recipe includes crayfish and eggs so you will learn to make a veganised version with no compromise on flavour. Green fry is exactly that – a stir fry of leafy greens. Soaked garri is a nutritious drink often consumed at the end of the month (you know those days just before pay-day) with optional peanuts, plant-milk, grated coconut and sweetener added for taste. This is not to be confused with the firmer dough like garri eaten as an accompaniment to stews - although it is made from the same thing - fried cassava flakes which are called garri. Nena says posh people might refer to them as fried cassava flakes.
This live interactive class will include:

She developed an interest in cooking 20 years ago while working as a sous chef in a restaurant. Her interest in cooking and creating recipes were revived when she became vegan four years ago. Nena believes that food is medicine and incorporates healing herbs in her cooking.

*Etere leaves are preferable and give the dish a unique taste. You can find them in most Afro-Caribbean shops. Use ovenware as an alternative to cook the beans if the leaves cannot be found to use as a wrapping.
