Niger - Dounguouri Soko

Niger is a landlocked country in West Africa. I chose this lamb stew because it has a kind of beans I haven't tried before plus JD loves beans.


1 lb lamb
2 cans white kidney beans
1 onions
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 can chopped tomatoes
3 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Salt & pepper
1 cup water

 I'm almost ashamed how easy this dish was to make.

Chop everything, open up cans and dump everything in the slow cooker.

Give it a stir. Slow cook on high for a couple of hours and then 3-4 more hours on low.  Season with salt and pepper.

Beautiful! The lamb was melt in your mouth soft and the stew was delicious. Embarrassingly easy to make but tastes like a fancy casserole you slaved over. It's a perfect example of how food combinations can work well, even though there were no spices (as often found in African foods) the food was far from bland. We loved it. :)
