Bean soup

The Burundese are fond of their beans, they are present at every meal, sometimes together with corn, as this is the crop promoted by the government. Plantains are eaten a lot, as well as cassava an sweet potato. In Burundi, there are still a number of people living from India, probably already from the time of the Ugandan railway. As a result, you still see Indian influences on the menu like chapati, but less so than in Uganda itself.
Special days in Burundi are 1 July, Independence Day, and 28 November, Republic Day
 (1962). Click on culinary calendar for more links between cooking and worldwide history.
