Across West Africa, fermented foods bring dishes to life. The star of Afro-Funk is nutrient-dense dawadawa (aka: iru, netetou, soumbala), fermented seeds from the drought-resistant African locust bean tree. The result? A deep and complex umami flavor, complemented by scallion and earthy mushroom.
Serve with: Roasted vegetables, kebabs, stuffing for mushrooms or peppers.
