Cameroonian Healthy Vegetable Saute



Growing up in Africa we used to eat Bio products with no chemicals added, no conserve. I think we lived a very healthy lifestyle because all our vegetables were from the farms and they were very fresh ans healthy. We ate all sorts of fresh and healthy vegetables from the tropics. ” Jama – Jama” huckleberry was one of them.



This tasty sauteed vegetable was one of my favorite. It was perfect when sauteed with diced tomato onions and other delicious tropical herbs garnished with shredded dry crayfish. One good thing with our veges is that; you can easily replace a vegetable here and there, if you don’t happen to have the one you wanted on hand.



In Cameroon, we love our sauteed vegetable” jama jama ” alot . There are times we just change what we accompany them with ; fufu or maize flour, yam, sweet potatoes, casava … you name it …
