We are taking a break from our Nigerian recipes to explore the rich culture of other continents. For adventurers, this recipe is perfect for exploring and it tastes just as nice as it looks. 



  • 1 large cauliflower (or about 4 cups riced cauliflower)
  • About a handful of diced ham
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 1 bulb of finely chopped onion
  • 6 Eggs, cracked and beaten
  • 1/2 tsp
  • garlic powder
  • 1 cup of shredded Cheddar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (but I prefer the taste of Cameroun pepper)
  • black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 190ºC.
  2. Grate cauliflower finely with a food processor or grater and transfer to a large bowl. Place cauliflower in paper towels or clean mesh and wring out excess water.
  3. Add eggs, cheese, garlic powder, cayenne pepper/ Cameroun pepper, salt, black pepper and whisk until combined. Fold in cheddar cheese, finely chopped ham, spinach and onion.
  4. Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray or butter, then fill each one about two-thirds full. Bake for about 20-25 minutes max or until lightly golden.
