African Cuisine: Traditional Greens (Mboga Kienyeji)
Traditional Greens (Mboga Kienyeji) Ingredients
Remove the stalks from your mboga and cut to desired size. Place in a sufuria and boil for 20-30min until tender, then drain off water..
In another sufuria, heat oil and add onions then cook until tender and translucent..
Add your onions and salt (I also like to add a bit of black pepper coz it's magic 😁) then cover until tomatoes soften..
Now add your greens and mix well. Lower heat and let them incorporate the onion/tomato mixture for 5min..
Add your cream/milk at this point and mix well, then cover and cook for about 10min. I usually buy my milk from someone who keeps cows so the cream from boiling it comes in handy 😉.
Remove from heat and serve with ugali or as a side dish. At this point my kids started throwing tantrums so I forgot to take photos of the finished product haha. I'll update you guys next time. Enjoy!!!.
