This delicious stew is inspired by my friend from Sierra Leone. Many ingredients can be modified. This is kind of a 'whatever is in the fridge' recipe. You can use a whole chicken or turnips, carrots and celery. This looks great served over white rice with a garnish of fresh chopped coriander or unsalted peanuts.
OK, so my husband & I are used to the real deal, having spent time in Sierra Leone, so I kept my expectations low. But it was Really good!! I doubled the spices (always do), so it had a good kick. Also used chicken broth instead of water, & added carrots, & used sweet potatoes rather than regular ones. Otherwise kept the recipe the same. Will definitely do it again. - 21 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
oh.....my....gosh.....this was the best!!!! Like previous reviewers, I tweaked the ingredients: I added 1 carrot, 2 ribs celery, 1 can diced tomatoes, and instead of water used 2 cups chicken broth. Also I didn't have garbanzo beans so I used pinto. No natural peanut butter, so I used Jif (I did not reduce the amount). I served it over brown rice, and I am stuffed right now from eating an extra helping because it was so darn good! This is one of the best allrecipes.com recipe I have ever made. - 26 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I threw all of my ingredients in the crockpot and set it on low. Hours later, I came home to a home filled with the most intoxicating aroma. I decreased my broth to 1/4 cup. Added 1 tsp. of cayenne pepper to spice combo. I also included some carrots and raisins, for a twist. Extremely fast, easy and satisfying recipe! - 26 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
