    Katzen's Note:

    A flavourful and colourful stew, thanks to the host of vegetables and seasonings. Cook the greens separately to avoid any bitter taste. Because sweet potatoes break down easily, it's important not to cook the stew too long. For a mild, yet still flavourful stew, omit the hot chile. Serve it accompanied with crusty warm bread! From Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker.

      this is a delightfully simple seeming and yet complexly flavored soup. the spices are really suiting (i was skeptical about all of that allspice!). i used a couple of medium sized red potatos instead of a sweet potato - that came somewhat out of being skeptical and somewhat out of what was on hand - but after having the completed soup, i think you could do it either way! it wouldn't be too sweet. the heat of the jalapeno has a deceptive build, so it's a nice warming soup for winter or opening up the sinuses!

      I was looking for something vegan to make using fresh collard greens and happened upon this recipe. We loved it! Perfect on a chilly November night. I, like some of the other reviewers, did not pre-cook the greens. I put them in the crock for the last thirty minutes and they kept some of their crunch, which we really liked. My 12 year old put a dollop of sour cream on her bowl (there goes the vegan label ;o) and we all quickly realized that is an excellent addition! It just took all the flavors up a notch! Definitely adding this to our winter soup/stew rotation for the winter.
