Weird Food Combinations

Nigeria, we hail thee!!! In this great nation and country, people are known to be hardworking, enduring and persevering, especially when things are not going well for the family. Kudos to mothers and wives who make a great pot of soup with just Five hundred naira (#500).

African Food

The creative and enduring spirit of the people has brought about various innovation, including food and it’s combinations. These combos used to be peculiar to boarding school students, but over time, parents and family at large have joined to share in their delicacies. People now tend to bring ‘what is’ and ‘what is not’ to make good food, and guess what, these kinds of combinations tend to be sweet, for someone who has no food irritation (so to say).

Below are 10 of such combos which are really weird, although they ‘make brain’ to their eaters/combiners.

  2. Rice with Ewedu (Jute Leaf)
  3. Gbegiri (Beans Soup) with Rice. Does this sound like people who eat this combo take the beans soup to be beans? Hmm
