Food in Rwanda

People of Rwanda like to eat not too spicy food. Their meals are simply made with local ingredients. The Rwandan diet consists mainly of sweet potatoes, beans, corn, peas, millet and fruit. A traditional breakfast consists of sweet potatoes and porridge, which is a mixture of sorghum, corn and millet, mixed with milk. Bread and tea is what people in Kigali have for breakfast. Their tea has lots of sugar and milk in it. Dinner is the heaviest meal. Umutsima (a dish of cassava and corn), isombe (cassava leaves with eggplant and spinach) and mizuzu (fried plantains) are common dishes. Rwandan men also like to have beer which is locally made and you will not find women consume alcohol in any form.
