This ital stew recipe is one of my favourite vegan dinner recipes.
I was first introduced to it by my long time friend Ted. I really learnt a lot form him. He thought me how to use natural herbs and spices to bring out all the flavour in whatever I could. For that, I'm forever grateful. But even though I was learning a new stye of cooking I still preferred to let my friend handle all our meal preparations. And so I found myself at his house every evening chatting up about life and digging down into some vegetable stew. I can't forget those good old days (good times).
Please do consider this as a gift from me and Ted to you... ENJOY.
P.s. Ital is derived from the word vital. It can mean natural, organic or salt-less. It originated in Jamaica among Rastafrians and has become a popular term throughout the island. There are many different ital dishes but they all follow one simple principle, no animals must suffer for a plate of food. :-)
That's it!! You're done..... Wow I'm sure you can't wait to dig in. By the way, this recipe will serve for about six and should be served hot. This will go well with some boiled bananas, yam and breadfruit.
OH by the way, please check out this website if you are interested in learning other "ital" recipes or just more about a ital lifestyle in general.
