Please Take Note
- Why I used Ugu leaves for my vegetable sauce Recipe?
Firstly, ugu, or fluted pumpkin leaves as it is known around the world, has even fewer calories.
Secondly, pumpkins are quite beneficial; they, like watermelons, contain a large amount of water, and they also contain several vitamins such as carotene, vitamin A, vitamins group B (6 vitamins), vitamin E, vitamin C, and others.
Thirdly, because of the low-calorie content, it is suitable for those who are trying to lose weight (22 calories per 100 grams of pumpkin)
Finally, it is always available, accessible, and popular in my Nigerian market due to its nutritional properties.
Now For My Comparative Evaluations: Nigerian vegetable sauce vs. conventional Nigerian stew without vegetables?
Which do you think is better? If you ask me, I would choose the vegetable sauce; not only because it is simple to make, but also because it is more flavorful and healthier than the alternative.
You can even leave out the oil entirely if you like.
