Kenyan food expresses the confluence of cultures present in the country, largely stemming from centuries of imperialism and trade. Traditional Kenyan foods are usually filling and inexpensive to make, incorporating high-energy ingredients for a sustaining and satiating meal. This vegetarian coconut curry highlights the British and Indian influence in Kenya, and utilizing vegetables as the main ingredient allows for a lighter and healthier dish. Chickpeas provide quality vegetarian protein, and the onions, garlic, ginger, and spices help to bolster your immune system. Low-fat coconut milk provides the same creamy flavor as the regular version, without all the added fat and calories. You can always serve some traditional beef or goat alongside this curry to appease any carnivores at the table.
