Jollof spaghetti is a meal close to my heart. i love it to bits not just because it’s tasty but also because it’s easy to make. This meal always pops into my head whenever i don’t want to spend long hours in the kitchen. The name jollof spaghetti was coined from the popular Nigerian jollof rice since it’s prepared in a similar way. It could be prepared plain without the additional ingredients listed below but as a Carnivore i actually enjoy mine with anything meat or fish related. If you’ve got your homemade stock, you could use that in place of water. For this meal, you could also use tinned tomato paste to make it faster or make your own paste from scratch as i did in the recipe below.
