Beans and Jollof: For a change, add beans while cooking your Jollof. Boil them separately and mix together to simmer for some time. It locks in the flavor of both the rice and beans. Be careful while cooking and keep to time, because your rice, beans or both may end up being too soggy.

Jollof and plantain: Where are our dodo lovers? Feel free to decorate your rice with your plantains. Whether unripe, ripe or even sweet overripe pieces. Slice them nicely or dice them. 

Jollof and coleslaw: Never miss out on the creaminess of coleslaw. The amazing taste of this side dish will complement your Jollof successfully. The sweet-sour taste of your salad cream or mayonnaise blends with the spicy jollof rice.

Jollof and Moi-Moi: Moi-Moi is made out of blended beans and steamed to create a tasty pudding. Usually served at parties and ceremonies, It can be prepared with fish and eggs, which will definitely compliment your hot plate of Jollof Rice.  

Jollof and fries: Yes, Jollof and fries! If you’re hearing this for the first time, your fellow Nigerians are way ahead of you in the Jollof business. Fries are sides and are an interesting combination. Try it out and let us know what you think.
