Wow! What a great use of the crock pot. I didn't think I'd like it, but I LOVE it. I only make one-dish meals in the slow cooker, and that limits you to soups and stews, pretty much. This is definitely a different flavor in stews! I admit, my 8-yr-old wouldn't eat it - she only picked out the squash and carrots. But she's going through a picky phase. My 2-yr-old gobbled it all down.
I left out the okra (didn't have) and swapped in a can of diced tomatoes for the tomato and sauce. I pretty much scaled back the recipe to about 3/4, to fit in my crock pot. Loved the spices, subtle but exotic. Served over basmati rice. This would have been fantastic with some good feta cheese, but I'm pregnant so that will have to wait a few more months.
