What more could you wish for? Simply put, the easiest rice you would ever make.

Jollof rice is a legendary one-pot dish that’s ubiquitous in Ghana, Liberia, Togo,Nigeria, Cameroon and Sierra Leone. In fact, this is the most popular party food in West Africa and has been gaining momentum elsewhere in East Africa.

Because of its popularity there has been several debates as to its origin. What I know for sure is that- it is an AMAZING one-pot dish and there is no argument when everyone is shoving it down their throat.

Oven Baked Jollof Rice

I just want to say that  jollof  rice is great for entertaining, especially if you have picky kids. They always go for it.

It is fair to say , this delicious rice dish  is a fairly easy  to make anywhere in the world  because the ingredients are easy to find. However, there is a lot of stirring involve and sometimes the rice would stick to the pot making the dish quite UN appetizing.

Here, I completely eliminated the problem by making it in the oven. Here is how you do it.

Measure all the ingredients throw them in a ½ baking sheet pan. Cover; cook for about a 60 minutes. Let it rest remove cover and voila-Perfectly cooked rice.

Now, if you are  not vegan and want to throw in some meat or protein do so by all means. Stir fry  shrimp, beef or chicken and medley of vegetables, mix and serve.  You have your self a great meal that the whole family would enjoy.
