Before electrical refrigeration was discovered, Africans wrapped their foods in banana wraps to prevent spoilage.

The leaf had multi-purposes. It was used to cook, wrap or serve food.

The plant is rich in natural antioxidants, also found in green tea and gets absorbed into the food during cooking.

They are non-porous and add a subtle sweet aroma to your cooking.

There is a variety of food cooked with banana wraps like the Ofada rice (Nigeria), Waakye (Ghana).

But one of the most popular Nigerian delicacies prepared using the banana leaf is Moi-Moi, a meal made with bean paste and known for its spicey delicious taste.

You rarely go to a Naija party and not have Moi-Moi wraps served with #jollofrice. ๐Ÿ˜

"Na Ngeen Def" in #Wolof, a primary language spoken in Senegal means "hello".

Today, we sample Chicken Yassa. It is a #Senegalese popular sauce also known as Yassa au poulet.

A popular dish in some #African countries like Zambia, Guinea, and Ivory Coast.

The chicken is marinated in lemon and mustard for hours before it is cooked.

1 whole chicken
7 onions, sliced
4 lemons or lime juice
2 tablespoons of mustard
150ml of oil
1 head of garlic
@Atarofoods Chicken Rub
Black pepper
1 tablespoon chilli powder
Salt, to taste


๐ŸŒฟ Mix part of the garlic, 2 lemons, mustard and black pepper. Marinate the chicken for 2 hours or overnight.

๐ŸŒฟ Slice and marinate the onions with mustard, lemons and black pepper ( like you did with the chicken).

๐ŸŒฟ Grill the chicken in the oven or fry it on the stove with 3 tablespoons of oil on high heat until golden brown.

๐ŸŒฟ Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a cooking pot and stir-fry the onions for a few minutes. Then add in the remaining garlic.

๐ŸŒฟ Return the grilled chicken to the pot with 1 cup of water. Add @atarofoods Chicken Rub, chilli pepper and salt to your taste. Let it simmer for 30mins or until the chicken is done and the liquid in the sauce is totally absorbed

Serve with jasmine rice or couscous and enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜

"Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped".

In Africa, there is the general belief that a problem is tackled effectively when it is traced from its root.

So this week, don't focus entirely on the situation. Take another look at what caused it. Maybe you will find a new perspective.

Do you have a favourite quote from your hometown?

Have a great week!

The best way to use herbs is straight from the garden.

But what if you donโ€™t have fresh West African herbs and spices available in your garden?

We listed 3 likely places to shop for your #African seasoning.

๐ŸŒฟ Local African Shops
Depending on your location, itโ€™s possible to find a wide range of West African ingredients at local shops owned by African entrepreneurs. In some cases, Indian shop owners also stock ingredients that youโ€™ll need for African recipes. Ask the shop owner about the origins of the herbs and spices you find. Youโ€™ll want to experiment to see how the flavours work together.

๐ŸŒŽ Order Online
If you donโ€™t live in an area with an African and/or Indian population, making it far less likely to find African or Indian-owned shops, you can find distributors of African herbs and spices online. This solution only works if you already know something about the seasonings you want, including the flavours to expect and fair prices to pay.

๐ŸŒฟ @atarofoods Spices
If you really want to enjoy a West African meal, don't forget to try cooking with @foodsAtaro Spices. A wide range of cooking spices is neatly packaged from some of our favourite seasonings used at home to give you that authentic taste.

No more guessing on a weekend brunch for family or friends.

Get creative with your leftover potatoes! Make a fishball snack and spice it up with our @atarofoods fish rub ๐Ÿ˜


8 oz (225g) cooked fish - skin and bones removed
1lb (450g) leftover mashed potato
chopped fresh parsley
2 eggs
seasoned flour to coat
Oil for frying
3 cloves Garlic
1/2 Onion, medium
@atarofoods fish rub


Season your fish with onions, garlic, pepper, @atarofoods fish rub and cook for 5 minutes.

๐Ÿฌ Mix the fish and potato together well - stir in the parsley.

๐Ÿฌ Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

๐Ÿฌ Divide the mixture and roll into balls.

๐Ÿฌ Roll each ball in the flour and then set them aside in the fridge to chill for about 30 minutes.

๐Ÿฌ Heat your oil in a pan - enough to shallow fry - and then add the fish balls.

๐Ÿฌ Cook for about 10 minutes, turning frequently until they are crispy and golden.

๐Ÿท Serve with a glass of wine, juice or warm milk! So yummy.

Comment with a ๐Ÿ˜ if you will try it out!

There is a popular joke that people who live in the villages live quality lives than those in the city.

This is mainly because they eat more organic food and infuse herbs and spices which are medicinal into their meals.

Mace is one of such spices with multiple medicinal benefits.

Its numerous health and nutritional benefits include; toothache reliever, reduces gas and digestive tract infections, improves skin tone and reduces nausea.

You can use mace to cook soups or to spice up your meat. Due to its bitter taste, it is cooked for a short time and only added towards the end of the cooking.

Mace is also an active ingredient in our @atarofoods spices. ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸผClick on the link in bio to see our collection!

You ever wondered why bananas ripen so quickly? โ€๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€

๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ“Œ Bananas release a gas called #ethylene, a plant hormone that when released causes the ripening of fruits.

Next time youโ€™re looking to make that bunch of bananas last all week? ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

Pull them apart into single-banana units and cover each stem in plastic wrap or foil. The wrap helps stifle the release of ethylene gas to the stem end of the fruit.

Sh*to is the Ghanaian name for "pepper" ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ

It's no hidden fact that #WestAfricans love their pepper.

Sh*to is a delicious hot pepper sauce prepared with dried fish, prawns along with blended onions, chilli, garlic, and some spices.

With its rich taste, this dark coloured Ghanaian sauce just makes everything taste better.

If they say "Sh*to" on your first meet, then they're Ghanaians ๐Ÿ˜†

Want that hot and spicy taste and aroma in your sh*to? ๐Ÿ˜ Use @atarofoods west African spice blends

Hi Ataro Food & Spices, I got your West African Seasoning Mix on a lark at the Expat fair last year. It has now been my absolute savior through quarantine and in three countries! Now in Montenegro (where spice is not commonly used), it is a godsend. I don't know what I'll do when I run out but may have to make a special trip to Den Haag (enjoying tonight in a riff on channa masala).
Your West African seasoning mix made for some amazing kale chips in quarantine in New York!

It is a universally acknowledged fact that soup is food for the soul. There is nothing as comforting as a steaming bowl of freshly made soup on a cold and rainy day. To everyone who enjoys spicy food Iโ€™m sharing a traditional recipe with you today for Nigerian Pepper Soup. This recipe is not only a beautiful blend of spices that Ataro has put together for your ease of cooking, but it is also a very versatile recipe, as you can easily change the fish (main) ingredient that I used in my recipe and substitute it with beef or vegetables. The base of this soup is an aromatic blend of spices with fresh basil for garnishing. This dish is a traditional Nigerian feast at any dining table or parties! It is perfect for the cold season. This hot soup can quickly warm you up and also ease nasal congestion.
To all our American friends, Happy Thanksgiving! And to ALL our friends and customers, let's make gratitude a daily practice in our lives. What a way to be merry and be grateful for a year well spent. Join us at the Ataro End of the Year/Christmas party and experience the vibrant cuisine and culture of Africa.
