    Ingredients
    1 onion (very large), chopped
    1 swiss chard bunch
    1 can garbanzo beans (known also as chick, peas, ceci, etc.)
    1/2 cup raisins
    1/2 cup rice, raw
    2 yams
    1 several fresh tomatoes (or large ca, n)
    1 garlic clove (or more to taste)
    1 salt and pepper, to taste
    1 tabasco sauce, to taste


    Directions

    Fry onion, garlic and white stems of chard until barely limp. Add
    chopped greens and fry a bit.

    Either peel the yams or scrub them well with a vegetable brush, then
    slice them into thick slices. Add garbanzos, raisins, yams, tomatoes,
    salt and pepper. Cook a couple of minutes.

    Make a well in the center of the mixture in the pot. Put the rice in
    the well and pat it down until it's wet. Cover and cook until rice is
    done, about 25 minutes. Add Tabasco sauce to taste.

    A spicy vegetable stew -- I got this recipe from my mom, who got
    it from a friend. It's very easy to make. I find that the flavors of the vegetables don't stand out unless you put in a lot of tabasco. But then, I've got a cast-iron tongue. You should add enough to make the stew seem spicy to you.
