Another recipe from the cookbook in my kitchen Original Flava Caribbean Recipes from Home.
The recipe this time was for One Pot Vegetable Stew - Jamaican style!
I've seen similar recipes made with gungo aka pigeon peas, but the recipe here used kidney beans. Other ingredients in this stew were spring onions, carrots, butternut squash, scotch bonnet, allspice, thyme and coconut milk.
I've also been wanting to make spinners which are small long thinnish dumpling that expand upon cooking for a long while. So was pleased with the final hearty dish, though I need more practice to make the spinners.
This Jamaican Stew with Spinners was easy to make, especially with tinned kidney beans.
I should point out though, that my dish did not go reddy brown as the image in the book. Its because I used tinned kidney beans. I guess had I used dried kidney beans, then soaked and boiled them as instructed in the cookbook, the sauce colour would have been more red brownish.
I couldn't find the vegan recipe for the Vegetable Stew on Original Flava website, so I have tracked down a very similar recipe on Healthier Steps if you want to have a go at making it at home, then please do follow the link.
