This is from "Best of Regional African Cooking". The original calls for 1/2 c. finely ground unsalted peanuts. That's too much work, so I substituted peanut butter. This is a very thick, rich vegetable side. It is not a stew like we think of stews in the US. My husband liked it, and it is the only spinach dish he will eat.
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 chili pepper, chopped
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup light coconut milk
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- Saute onions and chili pepper in oil until onion is transparent.
- Add peanut butter and coconut milk slowly, stirring constantly until it comes to a boil. Add spinach. Salt to taste.
- Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes or until spinach is cooked.
