Koobi & Coconut oil infused Eba in Leaves using Koobi Salt
Family let’s make this soft and pliable Gari Eba wrapped in leaves using Buy Ndudu’s Koobi Salt.
Thaumatococcus Daniellii leaves (Waakye leaves/ Ewe Eran) are typically used for wrapping food across West Africa.
In Ghana it’s used in serving the popular Vegetarian Gobe (Red Red), Rice, Waakye etc and in Nigeria it’s used in preparing Moin Moin.
The leaves hold a distinctive flavour that permeates through any hot dish served in it.
The oils of the leaves have a woody lemongrass taste which when paired with the Coconut infused Gari Eba makes for a delicious meal.
Gather your preferred Stew or Soup and savour the amazing West African flavours of this dish.
