This heavy healthy vegetable stew is from an old family recipe. Served alone or as a side dish, it can be made in advance, as the taste develops as it rests. This substantial meal is easy to make and tastes great! Enjoy.

This was average. I probably won't make it again. I see your daughter loves her mum's cooking though Gingerbee!
You won't even beleive how good this one is! Even if you're not really a veggie eater, this is scrumptous!
This is the basic recipe my mother-in-law uses and calls it "Jumbot". She would use fresh tomatoes instead, and anything else she had on hand, any and all vegies left over.I used to turn my nose up at it all the time, and then I finally tried it, now I ask her to make it for me. Wonderful blend of seasonings, such a nice, simple, fairly healthy one dish dinner. I don't recall using the eggs though, and it was still dinner with a fork!! Something special added would be hot sausage, browned and added to the pot!! Mmm Mmm Mmm!!!!!
