Hearty Matoke Fries

I am always looking for new ways to have my everyday meals. As part of the many existing alternatives of french fries ,my favorite alternative are matoke fries.Matoke (plantain)  Fries are an excellent substitute to French Fries. They are more hearty, cook up quickly, are less greasy and more nutritious. Serve these hot and with ketchup or any sauce that you would serve with French Fries. I had mine with my sweet corn and tomato salad. This meal was  nothing short of fantastic.

Coconut Milk Stewed Matoke

Think about your childhood for a moment… If you were like most kids, there was always that meal you never liked to eat, despite it being healthy for you. Be it pumpkin, broccoli, peas or fish, there must have been something that you could not get down your throat. For me it was Matoke. I just found it absolutely unappealing, yet a month would not go by without my mum preparing it for us. With time, however, I really grew to like it and today it is one of my favourite Kenyan dishes.

For instance, instead of using ground garlic, use freshly pounded garlic cloves. I always cook with spices so I took this as a challenge and decided to make one of my favourite dishes, without spices. And let me tell you, it turned out better than I could have ever imagined.
From my heart to yours, I hope you enjoy this coconut milk stewed matoke as much as I did.
