So good and such a wonderful comfort food. Loved all the ingredients and the delicious flavors. You really don't need to add anything except some delicious bread to soak up the liquid. Thank you so much for the great recipe -- we will definitely have this dish again! Made for the African Recipe Tag, March, 2012.

This recipe is really yummy! All I did different was add a bit of flour to thicken it up a little and add carrots. This is a definite keeper for my family! Thanks :)

I have a similar recipe, so I almost didn't bother with this one, but am I glad I did! This was terrific; great blend of flavors and textures. I used jarred jalepenos and subbed couscous for rice, since I had some leftover in the fridge. Also, I used chunky peanut butter. Yum! Thanks, Katie! (This was Yupper-duper good!)
PS I made a double batch for a group of Lutheran pastors today. Used all the original ingredients, and everyone raved about it and/or requested the recipe!

Wonderful recipe. I agree it's a little closer to soup than stew, but it still tastes wonderful and is full of colourful, tasty veggies. I was a little unsure about adding the peanut butter, but it really does make the flavour. I will certainly make this again.

I just knew that we would love this stew!!! Easy to put together and full of flavour. I did have to make a couple of wee changes. Instead of the jalapeno...I used hot chili flakes. And for the garbanzos...I used some leftover lentils and rice that I had made. Thank you for sharing. Made for African Recipe Fun.

My family really enjoyed this. It has a wonderful flavor that is surprisingly yummy! I used 1 jalapeno and it was just the right amount of heat for my family. Also, I used chunky peanut butter because that is what I had and it worked perfectly. I'm glad I chose to make this for the Zaar World Tour. Thank you!

Surprisingly good. I made it with leftover Channa Dahl(similar to garbanzos) and rice. Agree that the peanut butter made the difference.

I decided to try this recipe because I had most of the ingredients already. What a wonderful surprise! Very tasty and easy to prepare. Perfect for a cold fall night. I used chicken stock instead of veggie, and red pepper flakes instead of jalepenos. I was debating not adding the peanut butter, but it absolutely made all the difference. Consistency was a little closer to soup than stew, so I might add less stock next time. Delicious!
