Day 71: Guinea and Kansiyé

Good evening, Raffies!

Tonight we are going to Guinea. After a week of eating nothing but meat, I really needed a break.
So we went for the vegetarian version of Kansiyé.

This is the recipe with lentils I followed.


1 cup brown lentils

2 tbsp oil

1 onion



1/2 tsp thyme

1 tbsp parsley

1/4 tsp cloves, ground

1/4 cup peanut butter

1.5 cups tomatoes, chopped

2 cups stock

Soak the lentils in water overnight.

In a skillet, fry the onions in oil for a few minutes. Add the herbs and spices and mix well. Add the lentils. Mix the stock with the tomatoes and the peanut butter.

Add the mixture to the pot and bring to a boil. Let it simmer, until the lentils are soft. If needed, add some more water to prevent from burning.

Serve with rice.

The traditional version, however, is with meat. Here is the recipe for the meaty one.

The dish was lovely. Very flavourful and filling. I’ll be trying the meaty version soon!
