I promised a recipe

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends. It is good to be grateful every day not just on this day of celebrating the bountiful harvest. In my daily practice I find that meditating on some of the many things I have to be grateful for is an appropriate ending to my day.

I am very grateful to Vesanto Melina and Brenda Davis for their book, BEcoming Vegetarian and the following recipe they include in it.

African Stew

1 onion, chopped
4 cups veg stock or water
2 cups peeled, diced yams or sweet potatoes
1 cup cooked chick peas
1 cup brown rice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 cups chopped collards or kale
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp tamari or Bragg soy liquid
or chili sauce to taste

In a large pot, sautee onions in 2 tbsp stock for about five minutes. Add remaining stock, vegetables and rice. Add salt and simmer 45 minutes. In a small bowl put peanut butter and a small amount of liquid from the stew. Stir into a smooth paste. Add the peanut butter mixture along with the greens and stir. Cook for five minutes. Stir in lemon juice and remaining seasonings. Makes about 4 servings.

This is one of my very favourites.
