#SMAFoodie: You Need To Try This Garri Recipe

We are all about diversity in cooking, and trying new and amazing African food recipes. This particular one is from Afrolems, and we are honestly glad we tried it because it was amazing. This garri recipe is for kanyan; a Liberian snack made with Garri and groundnut.

In case you don’t know what Garri is, it is food made from processed cassava. It is one of the traditional delicacies in most African countries like Nigeria. The only big issue is that not a lot of diversity has been put into this amazingly diverse food. So with this new recipe, we hope you can re-invent how you eat garri.
