According to Oldways, a nonprofit organization that helps people rediscover and embrace shared cultural eating traditions, traditional meals in Africa varied depending on where on the continent one might be. In Central Africa, Oldways notes that traditional meals were often based on hearty vegetable soups and stews that were poured over boiled and mashed tubers or grains. In Eastern Africa, the main features of traditional meals were whole grains and vegetables such as cabbage, kale and maize. In places like Ethiopia and Somalia, flat-breads play a significant role in traditional meals. Meals were based on these breads and beans,such as lentils, fava beans and chickpeas and served with spices. Beans were eaten throughout Africa, and Oldways notes that they were often pounded into a powder for bean pastes.
