Food is another important componente of Angolan culture, so we will share a new Angolan recipe every month in this section. We are aware that it’s not always possible to find the exact same ingredients all over the world, so for those ingredients that may be a little more difficult to find we’ll try to put some possible alternatives. We hope you try these recipes at home and we’d love to hear/see the results: you can use the #joinangola hashtag when posting pictures of your Angolan dishes!
This soup, also known as potato soup, is a great, lighter alternative to the bean soup. It’s made of common ingredients and it can help re-plenish fluids after a night of dancing and partying!
Boil the potatoes until it is well cooked, then use an immersion blender (or a manual one) to grind them.
When you boil the potatoes, you can boil them and grind it together with the tomatoes to avoid those thick pieces of tomatoes in the soup.
While you prepare the potatoes, boil the rice. Once the rice is boiled, you can fry the onions with some minced garlic.
When the onions and garlic are starting to take a bronze colour, add everything else (the mashed potatoes, the rice, the cabbage, the carrots and the green beans).
Don’t put too much rice, to prevent the soup from becoming too thick.
When you’ve added everything, let it boil until reaching the desired consistency.
