Ndolé and Cocoyams

Ndolé is a national dish of Cameroon and one of my personal favorites. Ndolé is a mixture of bitter leaves, which are indigenous to Western Africa and similar to spinach, nuts, palm or ground nut oil, salt, and pepper, and small pieces of fish and/or meat if you have any to include. Ndolé is normally served alongside rice, plantains, or cocoyams.

Ndolé is the green stuff in the picture below. The cocoyams are the big, white things. The second picture is of a cocoyam whole before being peeled, cut, and cooked.
