It’s been a while since that happened, so I decided to play a fun game of, What canned food do I have that I need to get rid of? This is what I collected from my cupboard:
- Fava beans
- Coconut milk
- Quinoa (the only thing I cooked)
- Chopped onion
- Chopped garlic (I heard it’s healthier raw, anyway)
My friend the Honourary Consul General of Burundi (I have friends in high places in West Africa) told me that in Burundi, they incorporate banana into everything they cook, especially with beans. In his honour, I sometimes do that too.
It was good, if a bit strong on the raw garlic. There were no disasters, save for me still needing to learn how not to cut myself cleaning the lid of a can. Oh well, it’s always good to have something left to learn!
