Dinner Time – Weekly Photo Challenge!

For this week’s Photo Challenge, we are asked to focus on  Dinner Time: share a meal with us, or shoot during your dinner hour. 

The first photo is a traditional Ghanaian food that has become so popular even among other African Countries.  I was introduced to this food by a Ghanaian friend who served it for dinner early in the year.

The second food is one that I love to eat occasionally. And the last but not the least food, is a sauce I enjoy eating with Rice.

Come with me to the dinner table. Bon Appetite! 🙂

*Traditional Ghana food – Banku with fish* Banku is an indigenous fermented meal of maize or cassava or a combination of both, commonly eaten in Ghana. It is a popular food that is eaten as a dumpling with soups, made from vegetables, meat or fish.  This picture shows a meal of Banku eaten with fresh pepper (Chili) and fish.

*Pounded Yam and Vegetable Soup with Stew*  This food is a popular traditional delicacy eaten by various tribes in Nigeria, West Africa.  The soup is made with assorted meat, seafood and vegetables. Spinach and Lamb lettuce/Mache can be used in place of the traditional vegetables. I love this food.

*Beef and vegetable sauce* This is one of my ‘quick fix’ sauce served with rice. It’s fast and easy to cook. I love it with my fav long grain rice.  

All photos were taken this year.

Peace and Love!

      1. Hum..I guess because in the US yams and sweet potatoes are considered the same, we forget than yams can look different, too. Thanks for the knowledge.
