For the majority of my childhood, I lived in Mozambique. The staple food where we lived in the north of the country was beans - eaten either with rice or a thick porridge called shema. Sometimes I get a craving for a hearty bowl of beans and rice, and today was one of those times. I cooked up some black beans with tomatoes, onions, garlic, cumin and several other herbs and spices, and served it up with rice. I forgot how long beans take to cook, though, so we ate dinner really late tonight!
Day 6 - Mozambiquan-style beans & rice. The ultimate remind-me-of-my-childhood comfort food.
