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
Very tasty meal, made as written. Many thanks!
I added some lentils and some garbonzos for protein and ate it all week. YUM.
This stew is fantastic! I cut the recipe in half (it was still ahuge batch). We've been eating it all week-as stew and in roll ups. The flavor is great-just enough heat. This will make a great dish for a pot luck. Thanks for sharing! I'll definately make this again.
