african baobab & peanut stew
Peanut stew is a traditional African dish and makes a great healthy lunch or dinner option. The added baobab gives it a vitamin C boost as well as a tangy citrusy taste. We served ours with brown rice but the stew could be thinned down with water and made into a soup.
- 1 tbsp Baobab Powder
- 1 tbsp Coconut oil
- 1/2 medium Red onion
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 1 inch Fresh ginger
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1 dash Cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp Ground cumin
- 1 medium Sweet potato
- 3 cup Vegetable stock
- 1 tbsp Honey
- 2 tbsp Tomato paste
- 1/4 cup Smooth natural peanut butter
- 3 cup Swiss chard
- Add the oil to a saucepan over medium heat, add onion and sauté for 5 minutes.
- Add the garlic, ginger, spices and salt and continue to cook for a couple of minutes.
- Add the sweet potato, vegetable broth and honey and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, add the peanut butter and tomato paste and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
- Once the sweet potatoes are soft, stir in the kale and cook until wilted.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the baobab powder. Check for seasoning.
- Serve over brown rice (if desired) and top with chopped roasted peanuts.
