Liberian Jollof Rice- The Best in Africa


Liberia has a proud history and excellent cuisine, which combines traditional West African and American South Creole techniques. The history of Liberia is in fact inextricably tied to the United States! Liberia, officially the Republic of Liberia, is a country on the West African coast. Liberia means “Land of the Free” in Latin. Jollof rice is a favorite Sunday meal in Liberia and the recipe varies according to locally available ingredients. I would like to think my traditional version would find great favor with the freedom-loving people of Liberia!

The dish consists of rice, tomatoes and tomato paste, onions, salt, spices, and chili peppers; optional ingredients can be added such as vegetables, meats, or fish. Due to the tomato paste and palm oil, the dish is always red in colour
