HEBA Umvubo

Makes 3-4 portions
Prep Time: 1 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes

Umvubo is a traditional Xhosa dish that is enjoyed with sour milk, or Amasi, in the summer months. It's usually made with crumbly maize meal but we've created a low-carb/Banting version for you from HEBA. This dish is high in nutrients and the fermented Amasi offers wonderful gut healing properties. 

Ingredients

3 cups HEBA
1 cup water
Pinch of salt
Amasi or buttermilk

Method

  1. Bring water to boil on a stove top.
  2. Add HEBA to water, stir with a fork until krummels form.
  3. Add 1 more part water as needed.
  4. Allow to cool as preferred.
  5. Serve with amasi or buttermilk

Please explain to me the ‘parts’
You say 3 parts of heba and 1 part water, how much is part? Is it a table spoon or cup?
