Casava Leaf Stew with Chicken. One of my favorite Liberian dishes: 4 bunches of cassava leaf hot paper (as mush as you like) 1 large onion (chopped) ½ cup or 1 dried fish 1 pound of fresh chicken or beef 1 tsp salt 1 tsp pepper 2 cups of Palm oil Chicken bouillon cubes (optional). Serve over rice.
Los Angeles Times photographer Carolyn Cole took this terrifying photo during her assignment in Liberia. It shows the devastating effects of the Liberian Civil War. Bullet casings cover entirely a street in Monrovia. The Liberian capital was the worst affected region, because it was the scene of heavy fighting between government soldiers and rebel forces.
