Mukimo:

If a Kenyan ever invites you to their home and they say come to lunch be ready for something extraordinary. You see, lunch is not a one pot dish like a casserole or a simple meal of fries and sausage. Ohhhh nooo!!!. Lunch is something much bigger. You will find yourself at a table full of so many dishes that you begin to ask if you are at the right house. You see it’s custom to treat your guests to a sumptuous meal with a wide variety of meats, vegetables and starches, so big and so varied that they will never forget. Seriously, it’s an interesting trend. The families go all out. You would think their daughter was getting married!

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!
