Senegalese Peanut Stew

Here is a delicious soup worthy enough for a dinner party.  I snagged this beauty from the Weight Watchers website.



  • Cooking Spray

  • 2 medium onions, chopped

  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped

  • 1/2 lb sweet potato, peeled & chopped

  • 2 medium carrots, sliced

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 2 TBS ginger, fresh minced

  • 1/2 tsp ground clove

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne

  • 4 cups veg broth

  • 6 TBS peanut butter

  • 8 cups chopped spinach

  • Coat a large saucepan with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring often, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the sweet potato, carrots and garlic; cook for 1 minute, stirring often. Add the ginger, cloves, salt and cayenne; cook for 30 seconds.

  • Pour in the vegetable broth and bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in the peanut butter until smooth.

  • Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer slowly, stirring once in a while, until the sweet potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.

  • Add the spinach; cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Yields about 1 2/3 cups per serving.
