Do you shy away from traditional “kienyeji” vegetables because of the time it takes to prepare them , cook them or they are bitter? Believe me they are worth every minute spent in the kitchen.
For great tasting kienyenji (traditional) vegetables the trick is whipping cream. My choice of vegetables here are cowpea leaves ‘kunde‘, slender leaf ‘Marejea‘, amaranth ‘terere‘, spider plant ‘sageti‘, black night shade ‘managu‘ and Bacella alba ‘nderema‘. How to cook traditional “kienyeji” vegetables:
Cook in a covered saucepan then afterwards add the whipping cream and mix the vegetables so they get covered in the cream. Do not let the cream boil just let it heat through then serve with ugali.
