    Geri by the Sea's Note:

    In the early 1990's, a housemate of mine went to Goree Island in Senegal, and came back with this recipe and a husband :-) This is a hearty, tasty stew of yams, black-eyed peas, and rice. I like to serve it on New Years Day. Use more or less hot pepper depending on your preference.

      This was a very nutritious stew and the taste was somehow bland but satisfying,meaning it didnt blow us away. Made this for me and my husband so I cut down the recipe as well as adding chickpeas. Because I couldn't find black eyed peas here, I used brown kidney peas instead. Before adding the rice I added a tablespoon of vinegar to the tomato sauce and this even balanced the flavors more. Its a nice dish if you want to cook vegetarian. Next time ill serve it with fried bananas if I can find it.

      This was a satisfying stew! Because it's just DH and me, I cut the recipe way down. I used canned black eyed peas. Also, I added ham left over from Easter. Made for Spring 2013 PAC
