This is another form of local rice that’s very nutritious and does wonders to the body. The calorie count is less than the average Jollof or fried rice and they boost your immune system and increase your iron. The only but is that you shouldn’t use vegetables that have a very strong or overpowering taste.
1.5 cups of Rice
2 cups of chopped green vegetables (Spinach or Ugwu)
1.5 Tablespoons of melted butter
