West African Vegetarian Vegetable Stew

Updated on March 13, 2015

Easy One Pot Meal

West African Vegetarian Vegtable Stew.

When I first came across this one pot recipe made with sweet potatoes, I knew I wanted to try it.

The original recipe called for a few other ingredients and used chicken stock, so I had to make a few changes.

I like that it's really easy and can be made in one dish, making clean up a snap. Serve it alone or with rice, cous cous or noodles. A great dish for entertaining or any time.

I made this for dinner tonight. It is delicious! Slightly spicy and slightly sweet. I made some substitutions... currants instead of raisins and kale instead of spinach... but still, very good. Thanks for the recipe!

      To make a stew we require some useful ingredients. The ingredients I need to make this stew are available where I live, so I may try it. Thank you.

      @Susan Zutautas: Raisins do change the taste of something. Not everyone likes them, but it's easy to leave them out or change the amount. Nice seeing you Susan. Hope you are doing better each day.
