Recipes for when you are on a tight budget as a missionary in Ethiopia.

Updated on March 23, 2015

Not everyone who travels to Africa has a lot of extra cash on them and normally the cash they take with them is used to help other people out. Here are a couple of recipes I threw together with what was left in the cabinet for when the missionary budget was tight or almost out. Cooking in Ethiopia can be an adventure in itself as there's not a lot to work with, at least not what westerners are used to. Note: the amounts of ingredients varies as to what you have available. This is why there's not a precise number for how much to use.

Tagliatelle Meal
Tagliatelle Meal

Broke Missionary Dinner #1

Tagliatelle 1/2 lb

Boil water and put noodles in to cook. Cook until done. Should be golden brown.


Sunflower Oil - just a covering

Butter - 1/4 chunk

Ketchup - bottoms of bottle

Chili Powder - multiply x3

Bacon (Hormel) - oh yeah, there's bacon (other missionaries brought with them)

Heat oil and butter together until butter is melted. Remove from heat. Add ketchup, chili powder, and bacon. Stir together until mostly mixed.

Season with salt as it is needed.

Pray before serving.

Broke Missionary Dinner #2

Macaroni

Ketchup

Tomato

Jalepeno Pepper

Special One Aceto

Egg

Boil macaroni until soft. Wash your veggies in cold filtered water. Slice up a small tomato after cutting all the skin off. Dice it. Cut up jalepeno pepper leaving off the ends. Combine ketchup, tomato, jalepeno pepper, and your personal guess of Aceto and place it on the heat. Leave it on long enough just to get the sauce warm and then set aside. Boil one egg until cracking and then remove. Slowly peel off the outer eggshell. It may fall apart and if so it's okay, just cut it up and put it on top of the sauce once you've dipped out your personal serving of macaroni.

Be grateful!
