In Kenya this eponymous stew is a popular way to cook Kunde, Swahili for black-eyed peas. Served over rice, it often makesa full meal. I found this on the internet. Posted for ZWT7-Africa.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 cups tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 2 cups black-eyed peas, cooked
  • 14 cup natural-style peanut butter
  • 14 cup water
  • salt and pepper


  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium flame. Add the onion and saute until translucent. Add the tomatoes and simmer about 5 minutes to cook them down.
  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients and lightly mash the peas with the back of a spoon. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more water as needed to get a stew-like consistency.
  3. Adjust seasonings and serve over rice.
