African recipes

Stretching from east to west, north to south, the origins (and variety) of spices, ingredients and flavors found in African recipes are as vast as the continent itself. Made almost exclusively from locally grown vegetables, fruits and grains, along with dairy, chicken and lamb, African recipes are rich, hearty and often spicy too.

African curry and stew recipes
If you’re looking for comfort food to warm you up, an African soup or stew will definitely do the trick. With a cuisine as diverse as the cultures that make up the continent, it’s hard to pin down one signature African dish or flavor. But no matter the region, a hearty stew or warming curry laced with delicious spice blends and rich flavors will give you a satisfying taste of what African recipes have to offer.

How to Use Freekeh in African Recipes

Freekeh is an ancient grain that has been used in African recipes for centuries. Thanks to its delicious nutty flavour and light and fluffy texture, it’s quickly becoming a popular ingredient in our recipes at HelloFresh. Here’s how you can incorporate this African staple into your own diet.

  1. Rice substitute Freekeh can be used as a starchy base for soups or stews in place of rice. What’s great about this substitute is that the ancient grain is a source of both protein and dietary fibre.
  2. In a salad Freekeh offers a wonderful nutty flavour and texture. Add it to a salad to transform it from a side dish into a balanced main.
  3. As a porridge Give breakfast an African twist. Freekeh porridge can be served as a savoury dish by adding veggies and a fried egg. For a sweeter version, top your porridge with honey and chopped fruit like apples or berries.
  4. Pilaf Freekeh is the perfect grain for a wholesome pilaf thanks to its fluffy texture and relatively high fibre content. Try this Spiced Freekeh Pilaf from the HelloFresh recipe archive and see for yourself.
