Ladle A Bowl Of Warmth! West African Peanut Stew
It may not be a soup you know, but it will soon be a soup you'll crave! Sharing our recipe for rich and hearty African Peanut Stew.
On our summer trip to Seattle, Vancouver, & Alaska we stopped at a cafe before crossing the Canadian border and I had the most incredible soup. African Peanut Stew. I had never had it before but what a new experience of flavors it was! I’ve thought about that soup so many times since that trip and once that craving kicked in I just knew I had to figure out how to make it at home. The smell alone takes me back! When that unique array of ingredients begins wafting through my kitchen, my mouth can’t help but water with excitement.
It’s like a warm bowl of happiness (and who can say no to that?) Especially on those cold days when all we want to do is bundle up on the couch, wrapped up in a soft blanket, and let a big bowl of homemade soup warm us right up. It makes for the coziest of meals, I might have just found my new go-to comfort food. And since you can make large portions at once, it’s perfect for family dinners too!
A rich and hearty stew made with chicken, sweet potatoes, ginger, okra, and peanut butter. I know it sounds like a whacky combo but it is so ridiculously good! Even better when you top it with some fried okra (we dusted these with Oliver Farms Peanut Flour), green onions and fresh chiles. I even given give my bowl an extra kick with a squiggle of Sriracha. Eye rolling into soup heaven!
