    We came across this dish at my husbands uncles wedding – the bride came from Zimbabwe and there was lots of great food from there at the reception – this was the veggi option.

    *2 cups chopped onions *2 tablespoons peanut oil or vegetable oil *1/2 teaspoon cayenne *1 teaspoon pressed garlic cloves *2 cups chopped cabbage *3 cups cubed sweet potatoes (1-inch cubes) *3 cups tomato juice *1 cup apple juice or apricot juice *1 teaspoon salt *1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh gingerroot *1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (optional) *2 chopped tomatoes *1 1/2-2 cups chopped okra *1/2 cup peanut butter

    Saute onions in the oil for about 10 minutes. Stir in the cayenne and garlic and saute for a couple more minutes. Add the cabbage and sweet potatoes and saute, covered, for a few minutes. Mix in the juices, salt, ginger, cilantro and tomatoes. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender. Add the okra and simmer for 5 minutes more. Stir in the peanut butter, place the pan on a heat diffuser, and simmer gently until ready to serve. Add more juice or water if the stew is too thick.
