A Canadian twist on a popular Zimbabwean dish, featuring carrots and kale cooked with flavourful fresh tomatoes and onions.
 

"I grew up as the sixth of nine children in a township called Nyanga, north east of the capital city of Zimbabwe. My mom was a teacher, and in Zimbabwe, teachers get paid only once a month. It was always a special time in our household. Once in a while, my mom would buy a meat pie as a treat. She would cut it into nine pieces to make sure each of us got a taste.  And that taste stayed with me all these years. 

 When I moved to Canada, I couldn't find anything like Zimbabwean meat pies on the market. I only remembered how it tasted. So delicious, so flaky, just gooey, savoury goodness. So I set out to make one. I experimented and cooked up a storm – I even got spices directly from Zimbabwe – until l I achieved that unforgettable flavour. And I knew I had to share it with more people. That’s how Mnandi was born. It’s a little piece of Zimbabwe, made with love."
