Vegan Nigerian Recipes

Vegan Nigerian Kitchen contains 100 recipes traditional to Nigerian cuisine. The recipes are designed to be accessible to a modern audience and easily applicable in the kitchen no matter if you’re new to Nigerian cuisine or have been cooking similar recipes for years.

Readers will learn the basics of cooking with Nigerian staples, ancient cooking techniques and tricks, and facts about regional cuisine. Furthermore, Makanjuola provides shopping advice for traditional Nigerian ingredients as well as personal stories and anecdotes that readers of her blog have come to love.

Many of the dishes included are derived from the traditional Yoruba meals that Makanjuola grew up eating in Nigeria, but the chef and blogger has also included dishes from other tribes across the country. The result is a sampling of some of the best dishes Nigeria has to offer … veganized, of course!

Vegan Nigerian Cookbook is available as a paperback on Amazon or as an ebook here.

The Vegan Nigerian Blog

Tomi Makanjuola was born in Lagos, Nigeria, where food was an integral part of her upbringing and culture. When she went vegan in 2013, she started the Vegan Nigerian blog as a way to showcase the various culinary vegan experiments she was conducting.

Since then, the Vegan Nigerian brand has evolved, and Makanjuola now offers her cooking at various farmers markets and festivals in London, works as a private vegan chef, and offers personal vegan coaching to those looking to make the switch to a plant-based lifestyle.

Vegan Nigerian Kitchen is Makanjuola’s second book. The first, Plantain Cookbook, included more than 40 vegan recipes using plantains.
