(Ugandan Bamboo Shoot Soup)
Ugandans are resourceful people. And they love their “ground-nut sauce”! Here’s a creative way families in eastern Uganda make a tasty meal out of what they have. Serves 5.
10 cups water
3 sticks raw bamboo OR 3 cans bamboo shoots
2 tsp soda ash (or *baking soda)
1 cube beef bouillon
1 onion, sliced
¾ cup All-natural peanut butter
If using raw bamboo shoots: rinse shoots and cut into slices. Add shoots and *soda ash to water and boil until shoots are soft. OR used canned bamboo shoots, no *soda ash.
Add bouillon, onions, and peanut butter. Simmer for 10 mins. Add salt to taste. Serve with roasted sweet potatoes, rice, or flatbread.
