      I had some fresh pumpkin to use and went searching for a recipe we would eat... since we're not huge pumpkin fans. This was so easy to prepare and had us actually finishing off the entire portion! I omitted the oil (used nonstick cooking spray) and salt, used orange pepper, chicken breast, fresh diced tomatoes, and frozen green beans, and added some sliced mushrooms as another reviewer recommended. Thanks for sharing!

      A wonderful stew that was quick and easy to prepare. Like the previous reviewer, i used chicken breasts in lieu of thighs. My fat busting changes included reducing the oil to 1 teaspoon and using a reduced fat peanut butter. I loved the combinations of vegetables in the dish and though the sauce was quite delicious, with a light peanut butter flavor. I added a pinch of cayenne as my favorite Senegalese restaurant's peanut stew has a trace of pepper. With the initial cooking time I rated my dish 4-stars but then allowed it to simmer an additional 15 minutes which had a wonderful impact on the results with a sauce that had flavors thicker, richer and better married together. Well worth the small wait. Leftovers were also superb so this is great for smaller households like my own.

      Went to Market Tag 2007 ~ This was de-lish!! Loved the smoky taste from the paprika. Made some very slight changes...used breasts instead of thighs...a yellow pepper instead of red...frozen green beans...added some sliced shrooms...and didn't use as much peanut butter as I wasn't sure if DH would have liked it. A great stew for a cold evening. Thanks MM!
