The Simplest Garden egg sauce recipe

I know I've been away for some time now and I'm sorry. I had to write some exams and also attend to some other important things. But now I'm back!

I must say that I missed you and your comments, and I hope you're doing fine. Lately I've been searching online for some healthy recipes because I've come to discover that true wealth is health. I love good food but I love healthy food more! Infact I feel healthy meals should be good meals.
After a long search I decided to write on a local sauce in Nigeria, should it be called local? Hmmm... I'm not sure. Anyway it's a nice sauce and it's good for weight loss if you are planning to loose those extra pounds. It's our one and only Garden egg sauce, which is one delicious sauce you can to eat almost anything with. I mostly see people eat the sauce with yam, but you can also enjoy it with rice, spaghetti, potato, plantain etc. I like mine with spaghetti.

This method of cooking garden egg sauce is the simplest method so far, you don't have to stress yourself by First Steaming the garden eggs then pounding them, that's what I call stress. In these method all you need is your vegetable grater, yhan (in Jeniffer's voice)

1. Grate the garden eggs using a vegetable grater (the one used for okra)

2. Heat oil on medium heat, add the onions and dried fish and fry for a minute. Add the pepper mix and fry for about 2 minutes.

3. Add the grated garden egg, stir well and add seasoning cubes and salt to taste. Cook for one minute before turning off the heat.

Note: you can add other vegetables like carrots if you have. I didn't have any in my kitchen at the time I cooked the sauce.

I'll love to know what you eat your garden egg sauce with. Mine is Spaghetti, what's yours?


  1. Sounds great! Will try that soon.

  2. I enjoy mine with rice.... thanks for this piece ma, it really handy especially now that garden egg is in season, moreso it reduces stress but using grater? Won't it make it discolour faster? And won't that affect the taste?


    1. Hello Festy's kitchen!
      Thanks for the comment. Concerning the color it will change a little bit but it will not affect the taste. It'll always taste great as long as you cook it well

  3. It really looks good. Keep up the good work.
