So, Jollof rice sushi is now a thing and we’re here for it

Jollof rice is a comfort food like no other. Others might have their chicken soups and mac ‘n’ cheeses, but us west Africans are prepared to spend hours arguing over Jollof’s rightful origin because, well, it’s just so good...


Jollof rice is a comfort food like no other.
Others might have their chicken soups and mac ‘n’ cheeses, but us west Africans are prepared to spend hours arguing over Jollof’s rightful origin because, well, it’s just so good. So when someone comes along with a new way of serving it up, we’re not exactly overjoyed.

Take African Chow, for example.

The food channel dedicates its time to making incredible grub inspired by every corner of the continent and now they’ve come up with a ‘Jollof rice sushi roll’.

Understandably people were confused, outraged, baffled when African diaspora magazine One Tribe first pointed out the recipe


But others where more willing to be convinced – with modifications

And we think it looks pretty good; granted, your gran probably wouldn’t approve but it’d probably work well for some kind of finger buffet situation. Just one thing – who would think of serving a Jollof of any kind without a pot of shito to dip it in?

That’s the real crime here.

Jollof rice, a savory one-pot dish with a tomato base is synonymous with West African cuisine. In fact, there have been great debates as to which country holds the crown in preparing the best version.  Despite national variations of this popular dish it represents the interconnectedness that African Chow strives to showcase. Try our creative spin on this famous dish… “Jollof Rolls." So put aside your allegiance and try this unique, healthy, vegan friendly version.
