Cultural Cuisine: Mlenda

Mlenda, also known as Corchorus, is a nutritious vegetation that can be cultivated in warm and sandy areas in Tanzania.

This nutritious vegetable is consumed by various tribes in Africa such as the Gogo and Ngoni and also consists of rich nutrients, such as vitamins A, C, and K, as well as various minerals such as calcium and iron.

Mlenda can be used as a natural weight-management meal for those looking to shed a couple of pounds due to its low-calorie content and abundance of fiber that not only influences a feeling of fullness but also assist in digestion.
