HEBA Boerewors and Chakalaka

Serves: 3
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes

Wors, pap and chakalaka is a classic South African dish! We've taken this old favourite and created a Banting version that can be enjoyed at braais, for dinner or use the chakalaka as a spicy addition to any dish. HEBA has been used instead of maize meal for a low-carb, nutrient rich pap. Traditional Boerewors is great for low carb eating. And chakalaka, a spicy vegetable relish, can also be served with curries and stews. If you enjoy our version, let us know!
