In Cameroon, it is a delicacy that is often skipped with tomato, some onions, Garlic, spices, dried shrimp, gambas, sometimes smoked fish, chicken or beef.

As you know, without turning back to the tradition, I do not say no to innovation. Here is our béwolè / folon salad.


For 1 nobody


– Some béwolè leaves quickly blanched in boiling water to which I added a pinch of baking food (cleans, softens the leaves, fixed chlorophyll)

– A small red onion

– A dressing of your choice , peanuts, some beautiful tomatoes, for me the garden and voila




Enjoy your meal…
