A staple food is a food that is eaten routinely, and in such quantities that it constitutes a dominant portion of a standard diet in a given population. Matooke is the staple food of Uganda.

Matooke is a variety of starchy banana, commonly referred to as cooking bananas. The fruit is harvested green and then cooked and often mashed or pounded into a meal. In Uganda it is steam-cooked and the mashed meal is one of the national dishes of the country.
