Celebrating Africa day with Manhuchu

Let me put this out there: I am not a fan of Manhuchu. The year 2007 I was in boarding school in Zimbabwe and bread was replaced by Manhuchu. We started adding all sorts of things to make this meal bearable, from peanut butter to sugar and sometimes jam. Yes jam in samp, I kid you not. Hard times indeed. Fast forward 2015, I got married to someone who is into his traditional food and had to embrace samp in my life again. I have had to come up with clever ways of cooking it and so far its been a hit in my home.

Saturday was Africa day and so I decided a nice traditional meal would be great. I then opted for Samp with peanut sauce, oxtail and a crispy garden salad.

For the Oxtail, I use this https://lifeoflinny.com/2019/04/01/samp-and-oxtail/ recipe.

I then added an easy salad, a mix of crispy greens and some sliced avocado. Loved it. This was a very delicious meal and the oxtail tied the flavours altogether very well.

Enjoy!!!
