African Vegetable Stew

 

A spicy vegetable stew - easy to make. Some find that the flavors of the vegetables don't stand out unless you put in a lot of tabasco. But not everyone likes it hot. Just add enough to make the stew seem spicy to you.

Fry onion, garlic and white stems of chard until barely limp. Add chopped greens and fry a bit.

Either peel the yams or scrub them well with a vegetable brush, then slice them into thick slices. Add garbanzos, raisins, yams, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook a couple of minutes.

Make a well in the center of the mixture in the pot. Put the rice in the well and pat it down until it's wet. Cover and cook until rice is done, about 25 minutes. Add Tabasco sauce to taste.

It doesn't add credibility to reviewers who don't notice that the ingredients don't match the directions. For example, the directions talk about using tomatoes but the ingredients don't list tomatoes. Perhaps whoever submitted it wanted a higher rating?

Anyway I often come online looking for authentic recipes for interesting cuisine and become frustrated when I find a recipe I think will be interesting only to see that it won't work based on inconsistencies within the recipe itself.

Absolutely loved this recipe-my cousin tried this and said he had it along with many other African foods in his African History class.
