Mukimo Recipe – Kenya

  • 4 large potatoes, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1-2 cloves crushed garlic
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 cups of spinach or other leafy green, chopped
  • 1 16-oz bag frozen corn
  • 1 16-oz bag frozen peas
  • 2 Tbsp fair trade olive oil

Place potatoes, onions, garlic and salt in a pot with water to cover the tops of the potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium-high heat and simmer until potatoes are tender (about 20 minutes). Add spinach, corn and peas, and cook until water has completely evaporated (about 5 minutes). Add olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and sauté until spinach is tender. Remove from heat and mash entire mixture until it resembles mashed potatoes.
