What do Sierra Leone people eat?

What do Sierra Leone people eatSierra Leonean cuisine includes cassava bread, fried fish, and okra soup. Stews are a fundamental part of Sierra Leone's cuisine with groundnut stew having been called the country's national dish. Cassava leaves are an important cooking ingredient in Sierra Leone especially within the Sherbro people. In order to prepare them the tenderest cassava leaves are washed then either pounded very finely or bruised with a pestle and mortar and then finely shredded before cooking. The leaves are added to palaver sauce, which is made using red palm oil, together with other ingredients, such as onions, pepper, fish, meat, etc., to create a stew. The stew is a favorite among Sierra Leoneans at home and abroad. To give the dish a more exquisite taste, coconut oil is used instead of palm oil.
Ginger beer is typically a homemade non-alcoholic beverage made out of pure ginger and sweetened with sugar to taste. Cloves and lime juice are sometimes added for flavour. No factory processing involved in its preparation.
