Caribbean Vegetable Stew

Caribbean Vegetable Stew

Recipe by: Susan Voisin
Yield: 4 servings

I found this recipe at and adapted it to get rid of oil.  The recipe as I made it is below.  (I also omitted the peanuts and cilantro.)

2 cups chopped onions
water for browning, if needed
3 cups chopped cabbage
1 fresh chile, minced (seeded for a milder "hot"), or 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
2 cups water
3 cups diced sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2inch cubes (about 1 medium sweet potato)
Salt to taste
2 cups undrained chopped fresh or canned tomatoes
2 cups fresh or frozen sliced okra
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Chopped peanuts
Sprigs of cilantro (optional)

In a nonstick soup pot, brown the onions on medium heat for 4 or 5 minutes (use a little water, if necessary to prevent sticking). Add the cabbage and the chile or cayenne and continue to sauté, stirring often, until the onions are translucent, about 8 minutes.  Add the grated ginger and the water, cover the pot, and bring to a boil. Stir in the sweet potatoes, sprinkle with salt, and simmer for 5 or 6 minutes, until the potatoes are barely tender. Add the tomatoes, okra, and lime juice. Simmer until all of the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and add more salt to taste.

Sprinkle the stew with chopped peanuts. Top with a few sprigs of cilantro, if you like.

Serve the stew on rice or with a fresh crusty bread.
