- Advertisement -
It’s another Friday, TGIF!!!, and today, we will be preparing the spicy Peanut Stew. The wholesome, dairy free stew, full of warm flavors has its origin from the southwest coast of West Africa, though some say it does originate from Mali.
Peanut Stew/Soup is usually a thick (thank to the main ingredient, Peanut butter and sweet potatoes), hearty meal of carrots, spinach, and sometimes meat in a rich and spicy peanut-tomato sauce, and is majorly an option for vegans and vegetarians, depending on the choice of veggies and flesh added into it though
Peanut Butter ordinarily tastes great and amazing, and I cannot imagine what it feels like coupling this stew with rice or other dishes.
Peanut Oil, Smooth Peanut Butter, Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Peas, Scotch Bonnet Pepper, Tomato (purée and sliced), Stock, Chopped Spinach, Roughly Chopped Onions, Black Pepper, Garlic, Ginger, Tumeric and Coriander. Lemon juice, Coriander, Spring onions and Sliced chillies are optional.
How To Prepare:
First blend/process the onions, ginger, garlic, coriander, tumeric and some scotch bonnet peppers to form a thick paste.
Next, heat a tablespoon of peanut oil in a the pot, add the paste and sauté over a medium–low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding a little more oil if the paste starts to stick to the pan.
Add in the peeled and diced sweet potatoes, drained and rinsed black-eyed peas, scotch bonnet pepper and tomato purée and mix to combine. Then add in the vegetable stock, the peanut butter, salt, black pepper, carrots, and stir in well. If you are using chicken or beef, add them in at this point. Cover the pan with a lid and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for some minutes, stirring occasionally.

Finally, remove from the heat and stir in the spinach, leaving it to wilt in the pan for 5 minutes. You may add in lemon juice, coriander, spring onions and sliced chillies, then check the seasoning, adding more salt and pepper if needed. Whoa, your Peanut Stew is ready! I hope you share your testimony when you try this out. Have a lovely weekend KOKOFoodies.
