Remember that in Sudan the variety of vegetables on offer is very slim. Apart from cucumbers, eggplant, potato, white and red onions and garlic, there is very little else except for frozen produce-imported and of dubious quality. This means meals can get boring and tripe very quickly. To keep our taste buds alive, we have started to use an abundance of spices-of which, Sudan has plenty!
Making simple meals with clever incorporation of different spices we can create delicious meals of very few ingredients.
