Democratic Republic of the Congo - Potato Dish








Formally known as Zaire, the Democratic Republic of Congo is a Central African country. Which was awkward because Zaire was also in my original list of 196 countries even though it's not a country anymore. So I had to double check all the ones I've done to find the elusive 196th country. All sorted now though so you can relax :)

Ingredients:

4 potatoes
1 handful spinach
1 onion
1 green pepper
4 garlic cloves
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 can chick peas


 Peel and cube the potatoes. Boil in salted water for 8 minutes.


Meanwhile chop the onion and green pepper.


Heat some oil in a frying pan and add the drained potatoes plus all the other ingredients.


Saute until the potatoes are soft and everything else is cooked.


This looked really appetising and smelled great while it was cooking. The flavours were very subtle and were improved with a grind of salt. It was a nice hearty dish to eat and felt like I was eating good healthy food. Lovely!
