I’m a total sucker for trying new, exciting flavors. The best way to do this of course, is venturing out of your comfort zone & trying global cuisines! Can we say #foodmojo?!

As a vegetarian, I’m constantly surprised by the variety of savory, delicious, nutritious & downright Mojo-riffic dishes that do not disappoint on the taste scale! Nothing depresses me you guys, more than a bed of lettuce & deflated tomatoes & glazed cucumber that looks like it’s one step away from death. And Ranch dressing showing up to fix things makes me want to cry. I protest! #tastebudinjustice

So imagine my happiness when I stumbled on this dish, at a food festival in San Francisco: I was immediately beckoned by wafts of ginger, garlic, tomato & roasted peanuts. Little did I know they were all thrown together, in a stew with collard greens. And served on a bed of quinoa. It was tangy, spicy, peanut-y & oh so heavenly & filling, I knew I had to find a way to make it at home.
