  Easter celebration may not be as loud as Christmas but it is a big deal in Christendom. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very essence of Christianity. So, at Easter, we renew our hope of victory over sin even as we celebrate the gift of eternal life which is automatically received through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In some cultures, foods like an egg that symbolise fertility or new birth are used to portray Christ’s new birth through resurrection. In Nigeria, we don’t associate specific foods with the Easter season. But we plan our menu to include some of our traditional festive delicacies and our food interests as well. For this Easter celebration, here are  some foods that you can include in your Easter menu:

This food can be adapted to suit your needs. If you pair it with pap, oatmeal, custard, it can serve as breakfast for you and your family. But if you’d rather snack on it or serve it as finger food, it will work well too. In case you don’t know, ojojo is made from blended water yam. It is delicious, easy to prepare and best served hot.

White Rice and Fish Sauce

  Our celebrations in Naija will be incomplete without rice of any sort. But we must not always celebrate with fried rice or tomato stew. Not when we have other interesting options. Fish sauce is a pepper-based sauce that is as flavourful as it’s easy to prepare. You can prepare it with fresh fish, smoked fish or both.

Coconut Fried Rice
