Pap with Spicy Vegetables Recipe – Lesotho


  • 2 ½ cups cornmeal
  • 4 cups water

Boil water and then stir in cornmeal. Simmer, stirring often to prevent burning, until mixture is thick and fluffy and water is absorbed. Serve with spicy vegetables.

Spicy Vegetables:

  • 3 tbsp fair trade olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 green pepper, finely diced
  • 1 chili pepper, finely diced
  • 2 tomatoes, finely diced

Sauté onion and peppers in pan with oil until soft. Add remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly and simmer (stirring occasionally) for 15 minutes. Serve warm over pap.
