Hominy, cachupa black eyed pea tomato broth stew homemade vegan potato farls

Black Eyed Pea and Cachupa Broth with Potato Farls

Cachupa, also known as Hominy in America, is one of the national dishes of Cape Verde, and can be found everywhere, with each restaurant having their own recipe. It seems basically to be cachupa, which is from corn, cooked in a broth with whatever ingredients on hand to make a thick stew. Its very cheap and extremely filling which explains why it is so popular here with so many people living in extreme poverty.

Here I served this sprinkled with parsley alongside cumin seed soda bread. Enjoy! Carrot and Coriander Soup   1 onion, sliced 2 Tbsp olive oil 2 inch piece of ginger, sliced 4-5 large carrots, …
