    Rita~'s Note:

    This hearty stew that originated in areas of South and East Africa. Potatoes, both sweet and white, as well as cauliflower, calcium-rich greens, raisins, and spices make a savory and nourishing meal to warm us on cold winter nights. Serve topped with rice, couscous, or quinoa.

      Nice flavor! Very warming. I needed to add a bit more liquid so I could get all my veggies submerged. Next time I'll throw the collards in a little bit after the other veggies. They were definitely done before the sweet potatoes were tender enough.

      This was a really nice recipe - loved the different flavors that came out. It does have a lot of ingredients and it makes a large serving. Will try it with a few less items next time around. Made for ZWT 2011.

      This was good. I, too, had no cauliflower so I added some yellow pepper. Skipped the raisins because my son won't eat them but I think it might have given it an interesting extra dimension. Also used broth instead of water as suggested by others. Mine was not thick, I may reduce the broth next time or increase the veggies.
