Simple and Delicious Vegetable Egg Sauce

Kenya vegetable egg sauce

There is nothing as quick as making scrambled eggs and throwing in other few ingredients. Vegetable egg sauce can turn into a delicious, satisfying lunch or dinner in no time. Vegetable egg sauce goes well with Ugali (sima) or plantain. Veggie egg sauce involves adding chopped freshly green vegetables such as Sukuma wiki (Kales), Amaranth leaves (Terere/Mchicha), spinach or Pumpkin among others…whichever is your favorite. Veggies add a tasty twist to the normal egg sauce.

For my recipe, I used Amaranth leaves (Mchicha or Terere) because it’s the favorite vegetable for my family and has numerous healthy benefits. Amaranth leaves are rich in antioxidants, protein, vitamins, calcium, carbohydrates, iron and minerals.

Vegetable egg sauce is quick and easy to cook. When you want a tasty side dish to accompany your ugali but you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, this is one of the best meals.
