The Hungry Nomad: Recipe: Poulet Congolais from the Congo

Recipe: Poulet Congolais from the Congo

local market

Finally I'm back home (& back online!) after months of living and working in Congo. So many stories to tell, so many experiences to share. For this blog the main question to answer is of course: what does a hungry nomad eat when this far away from home?

Well, she tries all that she can: from foufou (cassave paste resembling mashed potatoes, low on flavor, heavy on the stomach), pili pili peppers (hot!!) and fried fish from Lake Kivu, to loads of peanuts and cheese from Goma (small yellow cheese a bit like an aged Gouda... great for this cheese addict). But what I'd like to share with you today is a local recipe for a dish with ingredients you can source easily wherever you may be. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to comment!


1) A chicken
2) Tomatoes
3) Onions
4a.) Peanuts
4b.) ...  or peanut butter

1) peel and puree your tomatoes, add tomato paste and dice the onions

2) grind peanuts
3) in a big pot add (olive) oil and onions. When the onions are glazed, add tomatoes, paste, peanuts and chicken. Cook until chicken is tender. Add water if necessary.
4) Serve with spinach and rice. Yum!
