Tiger nuts part three: How to make Tiger nut cookies

Happy New Year Everyone!
After making nutritious Tiger nut milk several times using this method and this method for big batches, I looked at the pulp and thought, What do I do with these? I was definitely not going to throw it away! ZeroNever made candies with hers, but that meant adding sugar. Not an option for me. So I resorted to making this 2-ingredient cookies by The Burlap Bag, but substituting oats with the tigernut pulp.

Tiger nuts part one: How to make Tiger nut milk

Yes yes, I know I 'went off' again. Apologies.
But I have sooo much to share!
I recently discovered Tiger nut. No its not a scientific discovery. Making soy milk is always sort of combersome for me, then Vicky came home from work with a small bottle of tigernut milk. Tasted absolutely heavenly! Google gave me several recipes and you will read what I have been able to come up with soon.
Firstly what is Tiger nut?

Return of Daydah

Hi everyone! I know its been ages since I updated this blog, and I apologize. I am back and better, with lots of tried and tested recipes to share!
First let me tell you what I made today.

I made pounded yam with my blender.

Yes, you read right. With my ordinary 350W Philips blender. Twice.
I experimented with the stump part of the yam tuber. Sent hubby the picture at work, and he ran home straight. So I had to make another batch for him.
It was absolutely heavenly - no difference in texture, smell, look, to the one made inside the mortar.

I got the how-to at Dooney's Kitchen - her food blog is sooo fabulous! Makes you want to cook forever!
All my Naija peeps, go check out her method of making pounded yam with blender or even food processor now now!
Have fun!
And get ready for Daydah's return - I will be posting other homemade recipes as well, not just food. Anything I can make in my kitchen is coming up on this blog!

Stay tuned!

Nigerian Cuisine Exposure

Nigerian cuisine seems to be going into extinction - well its a gradual process, because we don't realize how rich our country's culture is in terms of food. There are soo many tribes with so many dishes with so many alternative ways to make them, its amazing! Every adult that got the chance to travel around during the '70s and the '80s enjoyed some of these varieties and I am sure will be lamenting this extinction.
This is one of the major reasons I took to sharing Nigerian recipes via this blog, to try to keep the memory alive!
I noticed some other people share this reality - On NigeriansTalk, the Blogger took the time to compile all the notable mentions of food in our Beloved Blogosphere. Our favourite, Alhaji's Groove, got a mention, as well as our African Weight Loss Favourite.

Please go over and read it all up!
