That’s the most important thing you should know about this recipe. It’s been weeks since I made this African Peanut Stew, but I think about it a lot – like an embarrassing amount – and keep looking for an excuse to make it again. Luckily, it’s so simple and inexpensive to pull together, I really don’t need a special occasion – it’s perfect for any night of the week.
I love it for a few reasons, and I know you will too. For one, it’s a really clever way to squeeze more of the superfood kale into your diet without even noticing (this is particularly ideal if you’ve got picky eaters at your table). It’s incredibly rich with fantastic mouthfeel; it’s flavor-dense, multilayered and just beyond satisfying. This soup is the perfect answer to a busy, bone-chilling fall or winter day.
And for a change, why not expand your global recipe arsenal and try some exotic, new flavors that allow you to venture outside of the classic American comfort zone? When I started experimenting with more ethnic ingredients and recipes, a thousand lightbulbs went on for me – it truly changes your scope of possibilities in the kitchen!
