Ugandan Spinach and Simsim
Sesame seeds - called simsim in Swahili - add an unusual nutty flavor to vegetable stews. This particular recipe is from Uganda.
- 1/2 cup sesame seed
- 3-4 tablespoons water
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
- 1 tablespoon vegan margarine
In a heavy stewing pan, combine sesame seeds and water.
Stir in spinach. Add more water if necessary; the amount of water used depends on how wet the spinach is. This mixture should cook in smallest amount of water possible.
Bring to a boil. Simmer until seeds are cooked, 10 to 15 minutes.
Add margarine just before serving. Serve with a starch.
