Who said sukuma has to be boring? the secret is in not over cooking it.

  • Preparation time10 min
  • Cooking time6 min


  • 1 large bunch Sukuma Wiki(cut into thin shreds)
  • 1 large Onion(sliced)
  • Garlic(optional)
  • 1 Tomato(diced/sliced)
  • 2-3 Royco cubes


  • Make sure every ingredient is ready before you start cooking as this is a fast cooking procedure.
  • Cook the onion with little oil in a suitable pan/pot until soft or translucent then add the sukuma and tomatoes and stir. Do not allow to brown.
  • Cook while covered for about 2 minutes before stirring again.
  • Add 2 royco cubes at this point by crushing them with your fingers as well as the diced tomatoes and stir. Allow to cook further for about 2 more minutes or until the sukuma wiki is cooked and bright green in colour.
  • Taste and add 1 more of the cube if necessary until you get your desired taste. DO NOT ADD ANY SALT as the cube has enough salt.
  • Serve hot as a side dish or with UGALI.
