Vegetables cooked in coconut milk with aromatic spices. In short Ital stew is a one plot plant based dish which derives from the Jamaican Rastafarian movement. The dish is made with root vegetables, herbs, spices and then shimmered down in coconut milk. There is absolutely no meat included in the recipe as it is extremely vegan. The great thing about this stew is that you can include as many vegetables as you want. And the sqeeze of freshly added coconut milk is best to compliment the dish.
