Kitchen World Tour: Burkina Faso

Burkanbe Peanut Stew and Riz Graz (fat rice)

Burkina Faso is a small landlocked country in western Africa. It’s one of the ten poorest countries in the world. The name literally means “land of honest men” in Mossi and apparently Burkanabe people are known for their integrity.

This was a very simple meal of simple ingredients but really good. I am loving the way West Africa uses peanuts and really hot Habanero chilli. A match made in heaven for the Peanut Stew recipe.

For the Riz Graz I used a black rice I had in the cupboard which on doing some research is apparently a lot like a locally grown and commonly eaten rice in Burkina Faso.
