This is from Vegan Planet. I made it last night and it was excellent. I would describe it as a very elegant stew. The subtle hint of orange gives it a refined taste.

For a healthy vegan stew, this is definitely 5-star. I followed the recipe as written. I fearful that the orange peel would be overpowering but it wasn't. It worked really well and made the dish rather sophisticated. I'll be making this again.

Very good recipe. I used sweet potatoes instead of red and put some smoked pork tenderloin in. Delicious.
