What a great vegetable dish, you can make it as hot as you want or as mild - I like it hot so I used 2 jalapenos, i habanero and 2 tsp of Peri-peri powder. I wondered about the cabbage but followed the recipe and it really added so much to the total flavor. This is a meal in itself but I had left over pork with it.

Good stuff! I did add a couple cups of black eye peas that I cooked up for some protein & added 2c stock for more stewy-ness (it was rather dry). I also used a couple tablespoons each of garlic & ginger as a personal preference. It was not too anything; it was wonderful! And only enough left for 1 lunch the next day. :) Made for African Tag 10/13.

This was our main course last night and I must say we really loved it. I did leave out the bell pepper as I can not eat it and I didn't have small potatoes so I cubed up 2 larger ones. I will be making this again as the sodium level is just great. Thank you Sharon for sharing. Made this for African Recipe Fun.
