    Great Recipe! This is a very tasty & hearty meal. However, next time I will cut back on the peanut butter. For my family the 3/4 cup peanut butter overpowered the rest of the ingredients. I just added a bit more of each ingredient which evened everything out.

    I will make this dish again.

    Great recipe. It's really hearty and filling and exotic enough to be interesting, but not too weird or too spicy for less adventurous or younger pallets. I will probably half the recipe size next time I make it for just my husband and I,though. It's definitely a family-sized recipe as it's presented here. I feel that it would have totally comfortably, generously even, served 6 adults for dinner, probably more. And made with vegetable stock, it's vegetarian, too, vegan even.

    Absolutely delicious. I served it with white rice. My family loved it. I used less Cayenne pepper. My friend from Sierra Leone does it with potatoes only. She and her family loved this recipe as well.

    * Simply a great dish and wonderful flavour combination!
    Saw TV show late one night & made notes to try the dish next day - so I hadn't viewed the actual recipe until now!
    I did a taste-test of the spice mix before I added (1/4-1/2 t cayenne pepper for 2 people and saw it so easy to tailor the quantities (of veges.
    I also used chunks of stew beef because the husband 'needs' meat!
    Left it on low in crock pot which gave a great, full flavour.

    It's very, very filling! I had a small second serving and now I'm stuffed.

    A half a tablespoon of cayenne pepper scared the bejeebers out of me, so I only put in a half a teaspoon. It didn't give a big kick, so if I make it again, I'd put a little more in. Not sure I'd like the full half a tablespoon, though....

    The serving size is way off - it makes a huge amount - I would say it's more like 6 to 8 servings, if not more than that.
