Generally, in the Gambian cuisine, soups are served as starters in an every day meal. Soups are very refreshing and have a cooling effect and use some of the most ingenious ingredients to prepare. The traditional Gambia Pepper soup is made with chicken meat, black pepper, red pepper, garlic salt and chicken flavoring. To enhance the soup’s flavor it’s better to use some tomato juice. Common soup in Gambia is the peanut soup, a dish made with onions, carrots, tomato juice, cayenne and sweet potatoes. This soup is very thick and rich in the same time and can be served in any hotel or household anywhere in this country.
