Mucûî Stew with Wawi

I had the great pleasure of my friend, Wawi coming over and sharing her favorite vegetarian meal with me. This root vegetable stew, named Mucûî is a common dish of the Embu tribe of the Bantu group and was something her grandmother made for her in Kenya as a child. 
It was a feast of cassava, squash,taro root, peppers, sweet potato,carrots,  greens, plantains and coconut. Fascinating to learn all about these vegetables and her way of utilizing them for nutrition and flavor. It was the first time I had tried Cassava It was all so delicious!
Thank you Wawi for sharing and spending a wonderful afternoon XO
