Let’s celebrate soulfully with this Sukuma Wiki recipe! A dish part of the cooking with soul celebration of food, highlighting ingredients with roots in African and Black American history in honor of Black History Month!

Did you know Sukuma Wiki translates from Swahili to “stretch the week”? It’s served with market-fresh sustainable fish on a bed of yellow rice making it a popular East African dish prepared with onions, garlic, spices and sukuma, known as collard greens.

Chef Sahib, native of Tanzania, remembers this dish as approachable and nourishing. “When things are tough, and meat is scarce, you can depend on these beautiful greens to make this soulful braise”, mentioned Sahib.

If you would like to recreate this dish at home, you can do it by following this recipe from Disney Parks:



  • 1/2 cup of canola oil
  • 1 cup of diced yellow onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
