As part of Immigrant Heritage Month, we’ve partnered up with Choose901 to bring you #Passport901. Throughout the month, we’ll be sharing recipes from around the world that represent the diverse groups and cultures that have come to call Memphis home.
We’ve traveled to the Middle East and Latin America, and now we’re traveling to Central Africa with our #Passport901. We spoke with two young women from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda about specialities from their home countries, and both agreed that this vegetable stew was a classic.
Yet when making the dish, they explained that it could change every time they prepare it according to “what the spirit tells you.” We’ve provided a rough outline of the ingredients and steps, but feel free to adjust it to your tastes!
Follow along with the video below to learn how to make this dish, and share the end result on social media, being sure to tag us and Choose901 in it with the hashtag #passport901. At the end of the month, you could win a prize that features swag from both of us!
If you want a copy of the recipe to print out, you can use the one below. Or, if you don’t have time to cook this week, check out our volunteer page to see how you can get involved in the coming months as we help welcome our neighbors to the 901.
