|Allspice Mutton Pea Stew|
West African mutton cuisines are famous for the use of fresh root and leaf vegetables, earthy spices and peas.
First, what is mutton? Lamb and mutton are the meat of sheep at different ages; sheep in its first year is called a lamb while the meat of an adult sheep is mutton. People in North America prepare far fewer mutton recipes than Africa, Asia or Europe, therefore, the term Mutton may seem a little bizarre.
Second, what is a pigeon pea? Pigeon pea is a pulse crop rich in proteins, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, sodium and zinc. Consumed as dry or green seeds and green pods pigeon peas are prepared as a snack, soup, mixed with rice or porridge eaten with or without meat. Major African pigeon pea crop growers are Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda.
