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.
