Kisamvu is a Tanzanian food recipe, Kisamvu is just another word for cassava leaves.
- 1 pepper, sliced
- 3 carrots, chopped
- 1 red onion, sliced
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 bunches of spinach, clean and finely chop
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup peanut butter (natural), to taste
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- crushed peanuts, for garnish (optional)
- To begin, fry the pepper, carrots, and onions in the vegetable oil until softened. (In the meantime, work on cleaning and slicing the spinach!)
- Check some of the carrots and make sure they are tender before continuing. Then add the peanut butter.
- Stir until vegetables are evenly coated, then add spinach. (Note that if you use cassava leaves, they are much more fibrous than spinach; you will need to cook them first.)
- Cook the spinach, then add the coconut milk, salt, and pepper. You can continue to cook to dry it a bit (it would be more traditional) or serve it moist, as I did. Serve warm with light, love, and a sense of adventure.
