The stock for African Beef and Vegetable Soup can be made with anything from Lamb shanks to fish or other seafood.



Heat Beef, water, salt, ginger and red pepper to boiling in Dutch oven; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 1½ hours. Add Squash; cover and cook until Beef and Squash are tender, 30 to 45 minutes longer.

Remove Squash; mash or purée in blender. Return Squash to Dutch oven. Add tomatoes and beans. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until beans are tender, about 15 minutes. Top each serving with hot cooked rice if desired.
