Ideas with nuts and edible seeds.


Ifisashi is a traditional Zambian dish made primarily with a mix of leafy green vegetables, tomatoes, peanuts, and sometimes meat. This nutritious and flavorful meal can be served as a main course or a side dish, and is often enjoyed with nshima, a maize porridge that is a staple in many African countries. The recipe below provides a vegetarian version of ifisashi, but you can easily add meat or fish if you prefer.

Nuts are rich in nutrients, including proteins, and they can be the main ingredient in a recipe on their own right. They can also be used as garnish, adding texture and crunch to other dishes.
