The Oil Palm

Red Palm Oil Bell Pepper Rice (with tomatoes and onions)

This is a traditional West African dish. Locals recommend serving the stew with rice to soak up the delectable sauce!


1/4 cup red palm oil

3 cups brown rice

3 large cloves garlic

1 small onion (or half a large one)

1 medium tomato

1 ground black pepper

3 tsps. sea salt

6 cups water

1-2 medium-large bell peppers, chopped and steamed


Brown rice in red palm oil, then add in veggies and spices. Pour water in all at once and turn to high. When it is boiling, turn down to low and simmer until the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. When done, serve up the rice piping hot with a side of red beans. Top with steamed bell pepper.
