African Vegetable Stew
This was an amazingly simple African vegetarian stew that was full of spicy flavor without being hot. If you haven't used Asafetida powder before you do not want to skip this step as it is well worth it. While Asafetida is one of the smelliest seasonings I've every used the end result is spectacular - it really smooths out and brings the vegetables together.
We had this meal on the table in about 45 minutes and we were both truly surprised at how good it was. We fought over the leftovers - I kid you not!
We served it over some basmati rice but you could also certainly use a long grain brown rice or couscous if you prefer. For those looking for optimum health this meal is low in saturated fat and cholesterol while being a good source of fiber.
- Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven and sauté zucchini, parsnips, onion, sweet potato and jalapeno until fragrant.
- Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
- Simmer for 30-35 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Serve over cooked rice or couscous.
