Githeri is one of the main staple foods in Kenya. It originates from the Kikuyu tribe of Central Kenya but has quickly become popular all across the country. The dish is basically a bean stew (sometimes with cubes of steak and potatoes mixed in for added flavour and nutrients), very rich in proteins and incredibly healthy and filling. It is best served as is, but can also be enjoyed over rice or with a side of crusty bread/chapatis. So if you love your beans, this is a MUST-TRY recipe!
