June 22, 2022

What’s better than pepper? Nothing! This is why you should add a little pepper to your dining. At the end of this article, you’d find yourself thanking us—you’re welcome. 

Just add pepper

Pancakes

You mean people make pancakes without adding fresh pepper or even ata rodo to it? Are you a cultist?

Ice cream 

This can’t be the first time you’ve thought about it. Imagine a sprinkle of pepper to your ice cream’s cold, sugary taste. You won’t look at vanilla the same way again.

Toast

Wine

Tip: One pinch should do the trick.

Rice

Rice has Nigerians in a chokehold, so why won’t you be open to trying new recipes? Add pepper to give it an extra zing.

Yes, we mean your white rice

Chocolates

Listen, too much sugar equals diabetes and nobody wants that. Why don’t you counterattack it with a little pepper here and there then?
