    Enjolinfam's Note:

    This recipe comes from Tanzania. A friend from Togo brought me this recipe he found on the internet, because he knew I was looking for African recipes to post for ZWT4. Cooking time doesn't include the time to cook the 1/2 cup rice. Thanks Sylvanus!

      This was excellent! Even the picky eaters loved it. I think next time I will add a little more beans, rice, and tomatoes as I like a lot of "stuff" in my soups. The flavor was fantastic though. I served it with fresh pumpernickel bread and it went really well together. This also helped to teach our kids about the foods that people in Africa eat.

      Loved this recipe! Only had black beans on hand, so used them instead of kidney beans, and it was great. Didn't add green pepper at DH doesn't like it. Great recipe - thanks!

      Excellent recipe! Even THE PICKY ONE loved it - she wants it for her birthday dinner! I wish I had doubled the recipe as everyone loved it & went for 3rds. The only thing I would do differently would be to saute the onions longer as they didn't soften up enough. Delicious, fast & easy! Made for the Vegan Swap 12/08.
