Egusi Cream Pasta – Afrolems Nigerian Food Blog
Egusi’s cream pasta is a recipe I’ve been thinking about for a long time. Going back a bit, I have always said that my recipes should be inspired by the ingredients that are available. That said, I have a lot of mom friends who are always looking for alternatives to dairy, especially milk.
Many children develop allergies to dairy, gluten, and many other things that didn’t seem to exist much in my childhood. It was an opportunity to think about the possibilities of Exi Cream. We’ve seen oat milk, almond milk, and soy milk quickly become staples in many households, but the prices of these alternative milks are very high, especially in Lagos. It got harder.
For this particular recipe, I was a little chicken and wasn’t sure if I liked it or not, so I went the route I did. I believe there is a certain level of brainwashing that is engaged.
After discussing the many consequences and the many ways this could go, I considered mixing the egusi with water and sifting it, but I thought it might be too thick, so what if I didn’t like it? Okay? Finally I boiled Egusi in a lot of water and sifted the milk. To create a creamy consistency, I thickened it with cornstarch to give it the consistency I was looking for. , tell me what happens. Try this Egushi Cream Pasta recipe and let us know if you like it.
