    Didnt have Okra, so used more zucchini. Also added a touch of ceyenne pepper for added spice.  -  27 May 2013


    This was very good. However I made a few changes: rather than tomato sauce and a fresh tomato I used canned diced tomatoes; I substituted the broth with 1/4 to 1/2 cup white wine and I used green beans instead of okra.  -  16 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    You know, I really think this is D-lish. I am not a big okra fan so I just left it out. The flavors are awesome and I added a few more raisins than what the recipe called for. For those other reviewers that didn't like the taste, you have to remember, this is MEDITERRANEAN stew, not AMERICAN stew. If you don't like ethnic foods- you won't like this but for those who can appreciate the flavors, it's awesome. I would definitely make this again.  -  12 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
