In Uganda I discovered matoke, a staple made from steamed and mashed green bananas (the type of banana is also called matoke), served in its leaf with peanut sauce. Yum! I ate it with almost every meal.
And to drink: a deadly spirit: waraj, made by distilling fermented banana.
Here is a picture of the matoke banana being sold at market in Kampala (top), and being steamed in its leaves (below):
