African Stew and Peanut Butter Cookies

OK, well I know I gave you this recipe a while back but I recently decided to make the African Stew that I have so loved in the past from the Becoming Vegetarian book. I used a rice that required a LONG cooking time so it took well over an hour to complete this stew but I always think it is worth it. The red dots on top are juts me trying to be creative with the hot sauce. I use the Vietnamese hot chili sauce. If you decide to make this, make sure you add the lemon juice and some hot sauce. I really think it is boring without those flavors.
I must be on a peanut butter kick lately because I also decided to try these "Big Gigantoid Crunchy Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Cookies" from the Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook. They were REALLY good. Mike took most of them to work and the guys enjoyed them. I made them again later in the week since we liked them so much. One of his friends said they did not taste vegan at all-whatever that means!


  1. I was just going to ask you for the recipe for the African Stew - the recipe that you scanned was not clear, so can you post that again?
    And the recipe for the cookies too. I don't have the cookbook.... post both recipes, please!!

  2. CAN I post the recipes if they are from cook books? I don't want to go to jail!

  3. I think you can - as long as you don't post the entire book and just a few recipes that you like... Just the African Stew one will be enough for me. Also with your variations, it is more an 'adapted' recipe.
