(mostly) meat-free, fish-free, fowl-free, dairy-free African Recipes

Vegetarian African Recipes

African cooking is often meat-, fish-, fowl-, and dairy-free more of necessity than choice. For most Africans, the ideal meal would have meat, if meat can be had.  forest path, congoEven when it can not be obtained in quantity, a small amount of meat (fish, fowl, etc.) is often used as a flavoring in many African soups or stews.

The meaning of vegetarian differs from person to person: some avoid red meat but do eat fish and seafood or even chicken (off the bone, of course); others abstain from all these and even dairy products -- so the recipes on this list either call for no meat, fish or fowl, or they list these as optional ingredients. Beef or chicken broth or stock is sometimes used, but vegetable stock could be substituted.

This list includes sauces that are usually used on meats, but they can also be served with staples.

It omits beverages; they are mostly vegetarian, but are included in a separate index. We didn't know whether to include insects or not, so they are not listed.
