I don't think there is a cuisine in the world that doesn't eat some sort of rice as a staple dish to accompany other dishes. This is one such West African dish and we did love it. You can add meat directly into this dish, and make it the whole meal, add plenty of green leafy herbs and you're done! Too easy.
Alternatively, make it to serve with our very amazing North African Curry Chicken just to get all of Africa involved! (Well, not all, but you know what I mean!)
