    Posted for ZWT7. The recipe I found used yellow food dye, but I thought colouring it with a little turmeric would be more authentic.

    There are many ways to make Somali tea, this is one way to make it. You can experiment and try adding more/less ingredients until you find your favourite way. I adapted a recipe from a Somali cooking website. You will need a small fine strainer. Enjoy!

    Recipe #456826

    A very hot marinade I found on the Congo Cookbook website. I eat a variety of foods so I love spices but also some heat and this is delicious. Play with the ingredients to tame, I tweaked the recipe a bit. It's really quick to make, everything in the blender! Perfect on shrimp (for the BBQ), but good for chicken and pork. (I think it makes around 1/2 to 1 cup)

    Nshima is always eaten with a soup or stew or sauce especially one which is called the Recipe #455142. The combination of nshima and Recipe #455142 is the only thing that most Zambians call a real meal. From The Congo Cookbook.

    Recipe #455157

    A basic stew from the Congo. Sorry for the vague directions. Posted by request from the book 'Best of Regional African Cooking'.

    Recipe #170705

    This soup version of Sub-Saharan Africa's ubiquitous Chicken in Peanut-Tomato Sauce comes from the Kongo people of the two Congos and Angola; it has much in common with other African peanut soups and sauces. From the Congo Cookbook. Times and servings are estimates.

    Recipe #455555

    I read this In Long Island Newsday and tried it for fun. It was easy to make and delicious.

    Recipe #415364

    This salad is healthy and pretty to look at. I usually serve it on warm days along with three or four other cold dishes for supper. You can use spinach in place of the cabbage, just make sure to use at least two cups of spinach, since it is less bulky than cabbage.

    Recipe #305021

    Adapted from Bill Odarty's cookbook called "A Sahara of African Cooking." I found this in " Down Jersey Cooking" submitted by Joyce Williams who has been researching her African-American roots. She said that when she prepared this recipe and served it at a church supper, it was so good, she got a marriage proposal...and his wife was standing right next to him! Moambe means stew in central Africa.
