We are sooooo excited to be among the top 18 winners on the CreateTV cooking challenge that just ended. When we submitted our food video- Njahi Turkey Stew with Pilau Rice it was with the idea of creating a new recipe to showcase a very unique bean; The Njahi bean.

Njahi is a special black bean beloved by all Kenyans and cooked in kitchens all over the country. I imagined that the beans would go well with the ground turkey, seasoned with a blend of spices and simmered in homemade turkey broth. I had experimented with coconut milk and wanted to add it to make the stew creamier and even more flavourful. So that was it. It was time for Njahi beans to shine. The challenge was on.

This soup is inspired by an older recipe from days gone by when people sat around the camp fire, cooking stews and soups in a huge cast iron pot over a hot fire, talking about their day as the sun went down and the crickets began to chirp.  Maybe you would like to do the same with your family. You could sit around a “camp fire” by  putting your soup in a crock pot and spend time playing some card games or board games, or making a delicious corn bread to go with the soup. Happy Cooking!

Smoothies – eat from the earth

In addition to making healthy salads ready to go, I am also crazy about making smoothies and having them ready to go.  The smoothies I make today are made from fresh wholesome foods found in the grocery isle and I love the idea of making something from scratch.

This year, I decided to create a new motto for my family. “To be healthy and strong you need to eat from the earth.”

I have known this to be true for all my life. While growing up in Kenya, we always ate fresh wholesome foods, 2-4-7. We had a garden in our backyard that produced bright orange carrots, variety of green and brown beans, snappy peas, soft fresh maize, brilliantly green kale, dark green spinach, juicy red tomatoes, and other yummy foods. This tradition continues today. My folks are proud gardeners to this day and when I visit, I enjoy eating all the goodies. I especially love all the different varieties of bananas. Fresh plantain anyone? and having fresh eggs for breakfast.
