WEST AFRICAN PEANUT STEW



West African Peanut Stew image

A hearty stew that's super-easy to make and great for peanut butter lovers. Can be made vegetarian or with chicken. In a pinch, feel free to use vegetable or corn oil for peanut oil, powdered ginger for fresh, water for stock, etc. Kale works well in place of collard greens.

Categories     Soup/Stew     Chicken     Stew     Low Carb     Kid-Friendly     Low/No Sugar     Wheat/Gluten-Free     Dinner     Fall     Winter     Healthy

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 14

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs (I used breasts)
salt and ground black pepper
1/2 medium onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)
1-inch piece fresh ginger, grated (about 1 tablespoon)
3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
1/2 tablespoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sunflower seed butter (no sugar added)
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
garnish: minced fresh parsley leaves, sunflower seeds

Steps:

  • Sprinkle the chicken enthusiastically with salt and pepper. Heat a large soup pot over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes. Add coconut oil and allow it to melt. Add the chicken in a single layer and brown well on both sides, about 10 minutes. (Don't crowd the pan; cook in batches if you need to.) Remove the chicken to a bowl to catch the juices. In the same pot, cook the onions and ginger until soft, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic, coriander, cayenne, and bay leaf, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes and water, stirring to combine. Nestle the chicken into the sauce, along with any juices it released. Increase the heat to bring the pot to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, covered, for 25 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pot; it will be very tender. Break the chicken into large pieces with the side of a wooden spoon. Add the sunflower seed butter and vanilla to the pot and mix to combine. Return the chicken to the pot and cover. Heat through, about 5 minutes, then serve, sprinkled with parsley and sunflower seeds.

  • Cut each chicken thigh into 4-5 pieces and season generously with salt and pepper. Heat a large saucepan, casserole dish or a deep frying pan over medium-high heat and melt the coconut oil. Add chicken pieces and brown well on both sides, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken to a bowl, including all the juices.
  • In the same saucepan, cook the onion and ginger for about 5-6 minutes on low/medium heat. Add garlic, coriander, paprika, chilli, bay leave and cloves and cook for about 30 seconds to release the aromas. Add tomatoes and water and stir to combine. Add the chicken pieces back in, together with the juices, stir and increase the heat to bring the pot to boil. Then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes with the lid on.
  • In the original recipe you will remove the chicken from the pot after 25 minutes but I missed that step so I added the cashew or sunflower butter and vanilla to the pot with the chicken in it and mixed to combine and dissolve. Otherwise you would have to add the chicken back in after you’ve added the butter and vanilla. My way worked just fine as well. Stir and cook all together for a few more minutes, uncovered. Taste for seasoning and add a generous pinch of salt if you wish…I did. Sprinkle with fresh parsley or chopped spring onion and extra sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
