    groovyrooby's Note:

    Peanuts (g-nut = groundnut = peanut) and onions and sweet potatoes! This salty-sweet dish is a Vegetarian Times reader recipe contest winner, submitted by Lauren Baker (adapted slightly here). My self-professed sweet potato hating husband requests this often, much to my amazement. The richness of the potato-peanut combo and the smooth-crunchy textures make this unusual Uganda-inspired meal in a bowl a real treat. And it all comes together so quickly you can be happily scarfing it down in no time!

    Special Sauce

    Sweet Potatoes

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To make the sauce, combine broth, peanut butter, tomato paste, lemon juice, and garlic in a small pan and simmer over low heat 1-2 minutes.
    2. 2
      Poke holes all over sweet potatoes with fork. Microwave on high 7-10 minutes, or until soft. Let cool in microwave. (I have cooked them this way, but I prefer to bake the potatoes in the oven at 375 for an hour prior to making - the day before, earlier in the week, whenever I know I can babysit the oven for an hour or so - and briefly reheat them when making this. They taste better & peel more easily.).
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Saute onion 4 minutes or until beginning to brown.
    4. 4
      Add chickpeas and saute 2 minutes more.
    5. 5
      Stir in spinach, reduce heat to low, and simmer 3-5 minutes or until spinach is wilted.
    6. 6
      Scoop sweet potato flesh into bowl and mash with cumin, lemon juice, salt, and turmeric.
    7. 7
      Divide sweet potato mixture between two bowls. Top with chickpea mixture and cover with sauce.
    8. 8
      Garnish with peanuts and enjoy warm!

      Rich, intense and quite a different combination of foods we normally enjoy. This would easily serve four at my house-a little goes a long way.
