Bobotie is a classic South African casserole that has a wonderful combination of savory spices.
Our version of this recipe comes from chef Kevin Dundon and not only is it fun to say (bow-boo-ty), but it tastes delicious too!
We think you will really enjoy it; it is incredibly flavorful and easy to make. You can serve it with a salad and crusty bread — Or do what we did here in the WOT Test Kitchen and enjoy with some tortilla chips on the side.
