Ashley's African Peanut Soup Recipe
The way the ingredients go together gives this African-inspired chicken, sweet potato, and peanut soup its unique flavor. The slow-cooker soup uses pantry basics, like peanut butter, canned tomatoes, and spices, and spins them in a deliciously different way.
Cooked it too high and it dried out a bit. Ended up adding coconut milk which helped a lot. Might be worth trying again?
I loved this recipe. I order African Peanut Stew at one of my favorite restaurants about once a month. This recipe was just as good! I didn't add the rice to mine because I don't need the extra carbs and I also didn't add sweet potato because I forgot to buy them at the store. Oh, I also skipped browning the chicken and vegetables because after 10 hours in the crock pot, I knew everything would cook down and meld together. I loved the combination of spices. EDIT: I made this recipe again last night. I had some random veggies in the fridge I wanted to use up (celery, broccoli, zucchini) so I chopped them up and threw them in. Also, I made with water instead of stock because I didn't have any. ALSO, I found out at the last minute we were out of peanut butter so we added almond butter--I think it turned out just as good!
Peanuts are commonly used in soups and stews in many African cuisines. This west African recipe uses it with tomatoes and pineapple to tasty effect.
Peanut flavor is balanced by warm spices and the earthy sweetness of sweet potatoes.

This prawn soup with eggplant, bok choy, and green beans is is very easy to prepare and yet is flavorful. It can be served with rice, or even as a simple one-pot meal.
