Tomato and Pepper Stew
This is a popular African stew. It has a red colour and can be described as a blended version of salsa. African red stew is a unique combination of vegetables and spices boiled in oil. It is consumed in main meals as well as being used as a dip with chips and toast. I call it the world’s healthiest African stew and that’s because it is made of a mixture of the world’s most healthy vegetables.
The vegetables in this stew are tomatoes, bell peppers, scotch bonnets and onions. These vegetables are blended in a certain proportion, usually
3 medium tomatoes,
1 bell pepper,
1 scotch bonnet and
1 medium onion
These cut into 1 inch cubes, blended into a smooth paste and are boiled in oil and spices. You could also give it a meat, fish or poultry flavour by adding gravy to the mix. Cook till thick or desired consistency and serve with: rice, toast, pasta, fufu, yam, boiled potatoes and fries.
This (3 Tomato, 1 Bell Pepper, 1 Scotch Bonnet, 1 Onion) proportion can be made in multiples and stored in the freezer. It can be frozen for 6 months.
