Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 3 small or 2 large red pointy peppers i.e tatase
  • 2 habanero peppers(ata rodo or Ose)
  • 3 small carrots(wash by scrubbing with a strong cloth or sponge)
  • 1lb goat meat
  • 1½ small onions
  • 2 medium sized garlic cloves
  • ½ inch ginger
  • A healthy pinch of black pepper
  • A healthy pinch of white pepper
  • A healthy pinch of thyme
  • ½ cup meat stock
  • ½ cup cooking oil(use coconut oil or any healthier oil)
  • Bouillon
  • Salt to taste
  1. Place the vegetables(except the half of the onion) into a blender(make sure the carrots are cut into little pieces to ensure adequate blending), pour in the meat stock into the blender and blend until smooth(roughly blend the mix if you choose to). Heat the oil, add the meat and fry in the oil until a little browned. Add the onion and sauté for about a minute or two. Pour in the blended vegetables and cook slightly covered; while stirring often. Stir in the seasonings after about 10 minutes and continue to cook until the oil has floated to the top and until the stew looks a little darker than it was when you first started cooking it. Drain any excess oil and serve as a side with any meal
