    MsPia's Note:

    This recipe comes from the book "Real Stew". The name on the book was: Turnip,Tomato, Chickpea, and Spinach Stew with Beef from Tunisia (pretty long name). I'm posting the recipe as it appears on the book, but I made it on the crock pot, adding the chickpeas and spinach in the last 1/2 hour.

      This was really good but a bit heavy on the turnips. Made for Traveling Through Tunisia NA/ME Forum 10/13.
