BEEF CARROT STEW

 

Carrot Stew and all tomato less stews are all the rave on food groups on Facebook. I first saw the recipe on the So you think you can cook group and I have to admit I was blown away at the idea. I cannot for the life of me remember who was the originator of this brilliant idea but I mean why have we not been doing this all along? Necessity is truly the mother of invention. If you do not live in Nigeria, or don’t understand why this is such a big deal, Tomatoes have become expensive and they make up majority of our dishes. We use tomatoes for soups and stews that are staples in the Nigerian cuisine. I had no reservations trying this version of stew because i love carrots in general and they don’t have an overpowering flavor so i figured they would blend well in the stew. The carrots also provide bulk to the stew the same way blended tomato does without all the excess liquid. I also added a tiny twist to it by adding scent leaves to the stew to give it a little bit more character. The benefit of this stew I see is an increased vitamin A content which in Nigeria is a necessary nutrient as it has been reported that there is a deficiency nationwide. Do let me know in the comments if you try my version of carrot stew.
