Democratic Republic of the Congo

Eric’s Thoughts:

Ugali is like mashed potatoes, but gummy and without flavor. You scoop it into your hands and make what resembles a mashed potato taco. I respect the concept. 

And though the ugali and the peanut butter chicken soup were the most interesting, what I really walked away with is the fact that plantains are like bananas without flaws. If I could find them in bundles, I would eat them all day, every day.


Food Fact from Jenny:

The staple food in DR Congo is cassava. This root vegetable is often ground into a paste and served with plantains, fish or bushmeat. Grubs and caterpillars are also collected to provide protein. [source]
