    Zurie's Note:

    POSTED FOR ZWT 4. A typical central African dish, simple and nutritious. They would almost always use dried beans and cook them, but obviously it's easier to use canned beans.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 potatoes, very large, peeled (or use more, smaller potatoes)
    • 2 cups spinach, washed, chopped, and pushed firmly into the cups
    • 1 cup oil (this sounds like too much, cut down by all means)
    • 4 garlic cloves (or equal in mashed garlic or dried garlic flakes)
    • 2 cups garbanzo beans
    • 1 red pepper, seeded, diced
    • 1 green pepper, seeded, diced
    • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
    • 1 teaspoon oregano (or use 1 tblsp fresh)
    • 2 teaspoons dried basil (withstands heat better than fresh)

    Garnish

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut potatoes into chunks and boil about 8 minutes in a little water.
    2. 2
      Add spinach and cook until potato chunks are tender, then drain well in a sieve or colander.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a large, deep saucepan until very hot.
    4. 4
      Add the potatoes, spinach, beans and remaining ingredients.
    5. 5
      Fry until potatoes are creamy and ingredients are cooked through. This will be quite quick in the hot oil. (Decide yourself on the quantity of oil needed).
    6. 6
      The recipe says merely to sprinkle with red pepper powder, simmer 3 minutes, and serve!
    7. 7
      I'm not sure, but it might need some draining. Follow your chef's instincts. These recipes are never perfect as given!

      This was quite yummy on its own, but I ate the leftovers with a little homemade Madras Curry Powder, which was also nice. I could see how another reviewer ate this for breakfast, since it really is a skillet potato dish. I did pack the spinach in the measuring cup, but would have liked about 3 times the quantity, so it could be more in balance with the amount of the other ingredients. I did not boil it, just added it at the end and let it wilt a little. I used 2 tablespoons of oil, which was more than enough. Delicious, Zurie!

      I loved this and so did DH & DS. We agree it wasn't a pretty dish, but no one even mentioned that it was meatless, which is rare with my carnivores. I used about 1/4 Cup of oil, subbed pintos for the garbanzos, used one green pepper and one chili for some heat. Made as one of my last recipes for Zingo ZWT4 as a Daffy Daffodil. This is a keeper for my family!
