Delicious Past…


With hundreds of different cultural and ethnic groups in Africa, the cuisine has a wide range throughout the whole country. There are hundreds of types of traditional foods along with various methods to cook meals. African meals can range from using only fruits and vegetables to other parts of the country using a lot of meat or dairy. African cuisine can be split up into these various areas: Central, East, The Horn, North, South, and West Africa. I am always trying new things so why not try an easy African food recipe using one below for your next meal? Let me know how it turns out too!

Eritrean Chicken


It is a good thing to try new foods. You are able to experience new taste buds going off in your mouth and it really can help broaden your palate sensors. I made a new friend in Costa Rica a few months ago, she is from Eritrea. She brought a lot of spices from home to have during her stay here. One dish she would often cook is a spicy Eritrean Chicken dish. It is loaded with flavor and spices that aren’t as familiar to me as others are. After she left, she gave me a bag of Eritrean Spice, deep red in color and a mixture of many different spices. I did my best to recreate her East African meal, this is what I came up with!

Delicious Rating: I don’t know if this makes any sense and I hope it doesn’t sound horribly horrible (not my intention at all) but as this was cooking it super smelled Africany (*not a word). It also tasted like it was from Africa so I was feeling pretty good like I nailed it! But it was really the mix of spices that I had, nothing on my part. The combination of tomatoes with the boiled down onions is really something to taste up against the spiciness and depth of the Eritrean spices. Really flavorful and a very delicious easy recipe & meal!
