This recipe for African Peanut Stew has such a bizarre combination of ingredients that it feels like someone closed their eyes and started randomly grabbing things out of the fridge and pantry.
But somehow it works. It tastes delicious, it’s very nutritious, and it makes a warm, filling meal that’s particularly nice in the fall.
1 cup apple juice
2 cups tomato juice
1/2 cup peanut butter
15 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
1 chopped onion
4 cups chopped cabbage
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
cooked rice and pita chips for serving (optional)
Place the peanut butter, apple juice, and tomato juice in the slow cooker and whisk to combine. (It helps if you put the cooker on high for about ten minutes before whisking.)
Add remaining ingredients to slow cooker and stir well.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. Serve with rice and pita chips if desired.
