Etufe is a classic Creole vegetable stew with cancerous tails in a thick velvety sauce. Start cooking with pasta ru based on butter and flour and gradually add the rest of the ingredients: vegetables, spices and, finally, cancer tails with fresh herbs. The vegetable base is made up of fresh tomatoes and the “holy trinity” of Creole cuisine – green bell peppers, petiole celery and onions. Together with spices, they give the sauce an unusual aroma. Etufe is traditionally served with boiled white rice, but you can just enjoy it by dipping fresh white bread with crust in the sauce.
