Greens in Peanut Sauce – A Central and Southern Africa Delicacy

Zambia’s version of the Greens in Peanut Sauce found all over Central and Southern Africa, Ifisashi, is usually a vegetarian greens and peanuts dish. However, meat can be added if any is handy. Ifisashi is usually served with Nshima, a sort of cornmeal dumpling or mush.

-one to two cups raw peanuts, shelled and skins removed
-two tomatoes, peeled and chopped

-two or three pounds of collard greens, pumpkin leaves, sweet potato leaves (or similar), or spinach; stems removed, washed, rinsed, and chopped
-salt (to taste)
