“These are like the sandwiches sold by street vendors in Niger, West Africa. Layer hot, scrambled eggs in a crusty, toasty baguette, wrap ‘em up and tie with a bow. Simple, filling and comforting. In Niger they wrap them in newspaper but any paper will do. The people of Niger often add a leafy vegetable called Malahiya – indigenous throughout the region, but here spinach is used. From Sasha Martin.”
