  • 1 medium onion minced
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large bell pepper any color, chopped
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. ground pepper
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes or to taste
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 lbs. mixed frozen vegetables
  • 1 can 13.5 oz. coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. salt or to taste
  • cilantro or parsley to garnish


  • In a large skillet, sauté the onion with oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the bell pepper, cumin, paprika, pepper, and red pepper flakes and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomato paste and garlic. Stir well and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the frozen vegetables, coconut milk, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and cooked through. If you feel that the sauce is too thick, add a little water.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.




As is. Just serve a bowlful of this hearty Vegetable Stew with some fresh & crusty bread on the side.
Over rice. Scoop a generous amount of vegetable stew over cooked rice.
With pasta. Mix in some cooked pasta into this stew!
A-la-Shepherd’s Pie. Spread some mashed potatoes over the stew, and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. (Here is a recipe for my Easy Shepherd’s Pie to give you an idea.)
With Eggs. This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy it. Just crack some eggs into the stew, then cover the skillet with a lid. Poach the eggs in the sauce for about 5-7 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolk is still runny. (Watch the video below until the end, and you’ll see how I do this.)
With couscous. I love to add a Mediterranean touch to this dish by serving some couscous on the side, and adding some feta cheese crumbles on top.
