Kales (known as sukuma wiki in East Africa) is known by very many different names in different parts of the world. It is considered a healthy vegetable green and full of nutrients including iron, vitamins,calcium etc. Usually served as a part of a main meal for lunch or dinner. It is usually served with Ugali (East African staple corn meal) or side vegetable with rice,chapati etc. The simplicity of this recipe (the very same way that I was taught by cucu!) will amaze you! Try it for a simple healthy addition to any meal.
More information & tips
1) The kale leaves can be mixed with spinach.
2)Other ingredients that you can add to spice this vegetable staple include addition of (minced) garlic (saute with the onion together). Also Meat, bell pepper etc can be added.
3) In East Africa the kale leaves are thinly sliced into very fine slithers like grass blades by the hawkers. You choose and buy your bunch, then give it back to them to thinly slice it while you wait (or go along with your other errands) then come back to pick your vegetables already packed in a plastic bag ready to be cooked (wash before cooking).
