Sukuma Wiki Recipe

This is made out of any leafy green vegetable, mainly collards or kale. Incidently, sukuma wiki means 'to push the week' implying sukuma wiki is a food used to stretch the meals to last for the week.

2 tablespoons fat (oil or shortening)

1 Tomato
A bunch of Sukuma (kale or collard greens), chopped

Melt fat in a pot and add the onions. Stir well and sauté for a bit. Add tomato and sauté. Add sukuma and sauté for a short time. Add 1/2 cup water and the add salt to taste. Let the mixture simmer until the sukuma has reached a desired tenderness.

Serve with ugali or chapati.

2 servings.
