Abstract
There is a unique tradition related to food consumption, known as ngrowot practiced in several
Indonesian Islamic boarding schools (pesantren). It is a concerned behavior by forbidding students (hereinafter
referred to as santri) to consume rice and various processed foods made from rice. Instead, they consume maize
and cassava as their staple foods. This study aims to explore the spiritual dimension related to food
consumption. Assessing food consumption from the perspective of spirituality is an attempt to analyze the
consumption behavior is not only a daily routine activity, but also may be driven by religious beliefs supported
by local culture. Using Islamic Boarding Schools in Tegal Rejo Sub-District, Magelang Regency, Central Java
Province as our research respondent. This study uses a mix method in data collection, including in-depth
interviews, observation and participatory research action.Our findings show that ngrowot reminds people to
consider local food tradition besides rice as their staple foods. The religious arguments of ngrowot have
motivated santri to practice ngrowot with strong commitment and discipline. It is believed to strengthen santriā€Ÿs
mind because it teaches the values of patience and self-control. This study uses interdisciplinary approach
including sociology, anthropology, and Islamic spirituality, which leads to a comprehensive finding . The study
recommend that food diversification programs need to consider local culture and wisdom, as well as religious
aspects. The practice of ngrowot performed on a large scale can be an alternative way for supporting food
diversification programs.

Key words: Ngrowot, Food Diversification, and Food Sovereignty, Pesantren, Local Wisdom
