Succotash is a unique recipe for you if you’re a vegetarian looking for a unique African dish. It’s full of vegetables such as lima beans, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, zucchini, and spices. It’s a natural dish in Equatorial Guinea you can eat as a main course or as a side dish.

While black slaves aboard slave ships went to Africa for supplies, succotash made its way to Guinea. Historically, Portuguese and Hispanic cultures influenced this dish. Some black slaves who made their way back to Equatorial Guinea for food supplies shared the recipe with the locals. 

The recipe has since metamorphosed to include meat and other vegetables in American and African cuisine. You can add any protein of your choice, carrots and potatoes.
