9jaFoodie’s New Sensation: Rolled Up Moi Moi



It is so exciting to find new ways of making the same African dishes and discovering new ones too! It is an added bonus to find an African meal that is healthy. Thumbs up!

Today, we are featuring 9ja Foodie as created by Ronke Edoho. 9ja Foodie is a Nigerian food  blog with healthy food choices, recipes, and tips. This meal caught my eye, and I would love to share with our iNub readers. It is called Moi Moi Roll-up.

The Roll-up is easy to make and takes about 20 minutes with an-already peeled beans. It looks like a Japanese rolled omelet. Also, it tastes just like Moi Moi, and the only difference is the presentation.
