Side Serving of Amadumbe

How many times have you been asked : "with mash, rice or baked potatoes"? Here we are in KZN and I have never been offered amadumbe! Try sautéing onion, bacon, rosemary and amadumbe with a dash of cream for an interesting and unusual side option.

Yields: 4


350g steamed Amadumbies, cut into slices

15 ml salted Butter

½ medium White Onion, sliced

120g Bacon, rind removed

7 Thyme Sprigs

1 Rosemary sprig, chopped

¾ cup Cream

Fine Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper


1) Heat a large pan; add butter and then sauté onions until translucent

2) Add bacon and then thyme and rosemary

3) Once cooked push to the side of the pan and add thickly sliced rings of Amadumbies

4) Finish with cream, continue heating, season well and serve

Please post your comments and any food-related questions below.

I look forward to hearing from you.
