Welcome to Gabon, where meals can be used as breakfast lunch or dinner.

Simple greens with peanuts can be had at any time of the day. With eggs for breakfast, bread (bâton de manioc or fufu) for lunch or with rice and a meat dish for dinner. If you’re really in the mood to be Popeye then you could make up a batch in the morning and have it throughout the day.

We used spinach as our greens, and eggs as our accompaniment and it was awesome. This is a super easy way to fancy up your breakfast. All you have to do is chop them fry. So go ahead, give it ago.
