Day 64: Gambia and Cherreh

Good evening, my fellow foodies!

We are going to Gambia tonight. Once again, a country I know very little about and that I am eager to discover.
The dish I have decided to make for Gambia is Cherreh.
This is the recipe I have followed. If you like veggies and are curious to try something new, this is the right dish for you!

You’ll need:
500g spinach
a handful of okras sliced
250g beef diced (optional)
250g grated or chopped peanuts
2 bouillon cubes
salt and pepper to taste
1,5-2 l water
1 red and 1 green pepper sliced

Begin with washing the spinach. Boil it with the okra and crush them in a bowl.
Season the beef with salt and pepper and let it rest for at least 30 minutes.
Put all the ingredients (apart from okra,spinach and pepper) into a casserole with the water and simmer for approximately one hour, until the meat is tender and most of the water evaporated.

Add the spinach, okra and pepper and cook for another 10 minutes.
Serve with steamed millet balls or rice.

The dish was very delicate, yet flavourful due to the peanuts. Very nice. This is a perfect dish also for the vegetarians among you.
