Oven-Baked Jollof rice 1 5 1

The truth is baked jollof is not traditional, it goes against everything your mum told you about a woman that can cook jollof, it will not impress the men who just love to see their wives in the kitchen for hours but it will certainly save your time. It's like discovering the microwave or frozen meals all over again except this time you actually made it. So if you are like me and your time is precious, try the recipe below and thank me later!
