Nkate Nkawan Delights by Luca
Enjoy all the flavours of African cuisine with this delicious sauce recipe from Central Africa. The traditional recipe is based on locally sourced products such as peanuts, rice, lentils, peas, chicken, beef and pork. At Luca we have created this delicious 100% vegetable alternative to Nkate Nkawan, replacing the chicken with vegetable protein.
This is a quick and easy recipe with an extraordinary flavour. Luca Delights have exactly the same flavour and texture as chicken, which means you won’t miss it. Enjoy your meal, or… lekkal bu bakh!

How good is rawmesan!
