Ofe Uziza

What I termed Ofe Owerri then, is simple Ofe Uziza. I had been wanting to cook this dish for some time now, and yesterday evening, I had no choice. I prepared it for a pregnant woman whose recent craving is Uziza. It was almost an emotional please. The poor thing, can’t get the smell and taste of Uziza out of her mind, and though she suggested I make Efo riro with some uziza, I said no, I will do it the Igbo way. You see, I have made what I used to call ofe owerri, so many times, and each time it has been a hit, especially with guests. The pot emptying kind of hit, and yesterday, it was no different. Her feedback – “Dunni, your soup almost caused fight yesterday. I was so territorial with it, my husband was only allowed a small portion and when he wanted more, my mama bear instincts came out in full force. Long and short of the story, we are ordering another bowl, you satisfied my cravings 100%“. That is what I do and that is how I roll. This is a recipe, that is designed to make Uziza shine like the amazeballs herb that it is. Uziza should have protected status, like champagne. There are so many things I want to do with it, just waiting for the stars to align and His Grace to open that door. Watch out world, the Uziza takeover is coming. Let’s Cook
