Reheating your food.

One of the many beauties of our dishes is that they freeze and reheat nicely. Seriously, you warm it up and it tastes as good as new.

Before owning my own business I worked as a Sr. Analyst. It was challenging work that I honestly enjoyed, but with 3 kids and a husband that's great at a lot of things (cooking isn't one of them) cooking in large batches and storing them was how I survived.

Maybe your story is similar, maybe you work long hours, or maybe cooking just isn't your thing. Whatever the case is, I got you.

Stews & Soups

Depending on your location, your order might arrive completely frozen or semi-frozen. If your order is frozen, it can be defrosted by using the defrost setting on your microwave. You can also allow your dish to thaw on its own in the refrigerator.

If you're looking to refreeze any of your stews or soups, it's best to allow it to thaw completely, stir and portion out the size you need. You can then refreeze for use at a later date.

Swallow: Pounded Yam & Eba

Some people actually like their eba cold, in which case, you don't need to do anything. If it happens that you prefer to have it warm, you can unwrap it and place it in a microwave-safe plate/bowl, and heat it up slowly. You can also add a little water before heating it up.

For pounded yam, I prefer to place it in a small bowl with a little water and warm it up in the microwave. You can also place it in a small pot on the stove, add a little water and let it warm up on low heat, then stir.

Moi Moi (Bean Cake)

Ok, so many people just pop this in the microwave (please be sure to remove it from the aluminum container). Personally, I prefer to reheat my moimoi on the stove. I feel like the microwave dries it out, but when I reheat on the stove, it comes out nice and moist- the way it's supposed to be.
