Irio (Kenyan mashed peas, corn and potatoes)

kept bytihleigh

In Kenya, dried green peas are often used for this dish and need to be soaked in water and then cooked separately from the potatoes.

Add a little butter to the final puree for a little more flavor if you like.

Stir some lima beans or sautéed greens into the puree for added flavor, texture and color.


2 cups Green peas
1 1/2 lbs Potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
Water -- to cover
2 tsp Salt
2 cups Corn, fresh or frozen
