Traditional foods from the gardens of Uganda

Many traditional foods from Uganda are very healthy – and plant-based.

They include posho, groundnuts (peanuts), kikomando served with fried beans, matoke served with beans or groundnuts, sim sim and malewa.

Delicious snacks include plant-based rolex (chapati filled with onions, cabbage, kale, tomatoes etc), vegetable samosas and roasted groundnuts.

The simplest dessert – fresh fruits – is also delicious and health-giving.

These are just a few of the naturally plant-based foods that have been eaten for generations.
