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!
