Vegetarian Food in Zambia

Cross posted from Border Jumpers.

Zambians take great pride in their local foods and--thankfully for us--many of their traditional dishes are vegetarian.

Pictured here is Danielle trying "nshima" which is a kind of maize porridge and a staple food in both Zambia and Malawi. While not very attractive looking it was both filling and delicious, tasting a bit like mashed potatoes.Nshima is cooked from plain maize, corn meal, or maize flour known as mealie-meal among Zambians.

Eating at the KuOmboko Hostel's restaurant in Lusaka, we enjoyed nshima prepared with pumpkin leaves (a delicious vegetable dish comparable to collard greens), cabbage and carrots.
