African Peanut Stew


African sweet potato StewIt seems fall has arrived, so bring on the soups and stews! I printed this recipe out months ago, and finally got around to making it this weekend.

African Peanut Soup (also known as African Sweet Potato Peanut Stew) by Terri Mathis Edwards at is hearty and quite delicious! The combination of fresh ginger, peanut butter, and spices such as cumin, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper add to the flavorful stew served over brown rice.

Notes: I didn’t add the full amount of cayenne initially, but did add a little more after I prepared the stew and did a taste-test. (Cayenne doesn’t like me very much). I also didn’t add fresh cilantro for garnish simply because I didn’t have any on hand.

This one definitely goes into the “keeper” file 🙂
