Shepherd’s Pie with a Kenyan twist.

This dish was inspired by a visit to the Londoner in Addison, Texas. Here they serve all things English, and Kenyan cooking is very much influenced by English cooking.

 Shepherd’s pie is simply a ground beef stew topped with creamy mashed potatoes, all baked together in one casserole dish.

To give the shepherd’s pie the Kenyan twist, I decided to add greens to the mashed potato, as if I was making Mukimo.  For your greens, you could use spinach, kale, collard greens or green peas.

How I make my shepherd’s pie.

For: potatoes with greens.

Peel and dice three large potatoes.  Place potatoes  in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil.

Cook until soft.

Meanwhile heat a skillet, pour a  table spoon of olive oil.

Saute a cup of fresh chopped spinach in  a little olive oil, onion and garlic.

Mash cooked potatoes and incorporate the spinach mix.
