Method

  1. Gently soften the diced onion in the sunflower oil in a big pan or casserole.

  2. Meanwhile, whizz together the roughly chopped onion, ginger, coriander stalks and jerk seasoning with a hand-held blender. Add to the softened onion and fry until fragrant. Stir in the thyme, chopped tomatoes, vinegar, sugar and stock cubes with 600ml water and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 10 mins, then drop in the sweet potatoes and simmer for 10 mins more. Stir in the beans, peppers and some seasoning, and simmer for another 5 mins until the potatoes are almost tender. Cool and chill for up to 2 days.

  3. To serve, gently heat through on the hob. Roughly chop most of the coriander leaves and stir in, then serve scattered with the remaining leaves.

Excellent recipe! I halved the quantities, except the chopped tomatoes and it turned out great. The addition of coriander really adds something to the dish. It took quite a while to prepare and I managed to get 4 decent portions by halving the quantities but anyway I will make it again without a shadow of a doubt.

It was nice we thought too much ginger but each to his/her own. Maybe make again. It wasn't a hit especially fter all the preparation Average

I was originally put off making this as I don't have a blender but I chopped it up finely and it was fine (and didn't take too long). I halved the recipe and it just made enough for 2.5/3 portions. I roasted a pepper in the oven for 25min, used malt vinegar, cooked potatoes for 5 min longer and used dried herbs instead of thyme. Tasted lovely and not too sweet unlike some other jerk recipes.

Added coconut milk to tone the heat down. And added chicken also. Very nice.

Halved the recipe as making for two and have frozen the leftovers. Loved it, but as others have said sweet potatos take much longer than stated. I will roast them briefly beforehand next time :-)

if you try to add acidity ingredients like vinegar and tomatoes later after potatoes get cooked it will significantly reduce the cooking time :)

Agree with the comments about the time for the sweet potatoes to cook. I used a couple of dessert spoonfuls of jerk marinade (scaling the whole thing down for two), I don't then think any additional sugar, vinegar or stock cube is necessary.

Great recipe, really tasty and good to have a veggie jerk dish. You definitely need to cook the sweet potato for longer. Roasting them first would work well with this.
