READY IN: 14mins
Recipe by Stella Mae

Delicious soup that is eaten over cous cous, but is equally good over rice.

Soup made with peanut butter is a staple in Ghana (on the west coast of Africa), though they call the legume "groundnuts" rather than peanuts. My Ghanaian friends would ad a tablespoon of chili powder to give this dish some extra pep.
