      add corn ham & parsley to dry ingredients used dutch oven with 4 " sides need a 10 " 3" pan

  • Winter vegetable stew with Moroccan flavors

    • Delys77 on February 22, 2012

      First off, this recipe scores top points for simplicity of preparation. Essentially you dice various vegetables into good sized pieces and then mix with the tomato and seasonings and toss it into a very hot oven. The result is very flavourful and quite healthy with a good balance of tang and sweetness. The heat also results in a slight roasting of the vegetables which adds to the flavour. The preserved lemon is an excellent garnish and finishes the dish off perfectly. It doesn't score 5 because it isn't spectacular but it is very tasty, easy and healthful.

  • Cauliflower and sweet potatoes in spicy tomato sauce with cashews

    • Potterhill on June 26, 2011

      I made this recently and it was very easy and good. I would cut the sweet potato smaller, maybe 1/2 inch so it can be eaten with a fork. The 1 inch cubes are a bit large when the food is hot. I left half the chili seeds in, next time I would leave all. It looked just like the photo.
