If you are looking for an alternative to pasta and rice, you may want to consider attieke. Attieke is a traditional staple food from the Ivory Coast, located on the west coast of Africa. Fresh cassava is grated and fermented to make attieke, which is why it is known as cassava couscous. Attieke can be found in speciality food stores; it is typically served with meat, fish and vegetables.
