African Vegetable Stew

African Vegetable Stew created by Sarah_Jayne

This is a different kind of stew as the cinnamon is the promident smell as it is cooking, but blends in with the other spices and flavors creating a nicely flavored vegetable stew.

    I am busy preparing this stew for tonight's dinner, Monday is my vegetarian day, i am following the exact ingredients except i didn't add the teaspoon of cinnamon but instead added a stick of Ceylon Cinnamon.

    Really enjoyed it! I didn't add the rice or the lentils and it still turned out a treat :)

    I followed this pretty much exactly, and maybe added a bit more turmeric. This was so terrific, and even though quite hot here in Maryland, this really made the day very special. This had a wonderful bite, with the cinnamon, lentils and ginger. I topped mine off with some yogurt and will make this again, most likely a lot in the fall time. Very easy to put together, and especially loved the parsley addition too. Thanks, Luv2Bake. Made for *ZWT4* June 2008.

    VERY NICE TASTING SOUP! Since I almost never have margarine on hand (except for the soft, spreadable kind in a tub) I used unsalted butter, & the garlic cloves were large ones, & all other ingredients were as listed, although I did top my bowl with some shredded colby jack cheese! Made for an enjoyable & healthy lunch ~ Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed while touring South & Central America on the Zaar World Tour 4]
