🇰🇪 vegan East African spread with four recipes from the Kenya chapter of In Bibi’s Kitchen by @hawahassan
Kunde (Black-eyed peas and tomatoes in peanut sauce) - onions, coriander, turmeric, chopped tomatoes, and black-eyed peas are cooked in a flavorful sauce made of peanut butter or finely ground peanuts (I used peanut butter, the slightly lazier route!)
Mukimo - A traditional Kenyan dish with many variations depending on who cooks it. There are two mukimo recipes in the book, reflecting there is no one specific recipe, but the heart of the dish is mashed potatoes and green vegetables. I made Ma Wumbui’s version, which mixes red onion and pureed kale and collards with mashed potato, white beans, and corn.
Sukuma Wiki (greens with tomatoes) - This dish literally means “to stretch the week” referencing the fact it is an affordable and easy side dish to make any meal go a bit further. Cumin, coriander, and turmeric spiced onions are cooked with chopped tomatoes and dark greens (I used half green kale, half collards)
Fresh Carrot Drink - Carrots blended with water, sugar, and a splash of lemon juice to make a surprisingly sweet and refreshing drink.
Everything was👌🏼and all four recipes were already vegan
