    From Vegetarian Times. This African stew gets its distinctive taste from creamy peanut butter and chilie-laced chopped tomatoes. Sounds delish and I can't wait to try it!

      This was FANTASTIC. I love the flavors. I took the advice of SarSarK and blended the cucumber paradise! I considered making this without the sauce because the stew on its own would be great, but the sauce adds a whole new dimension to it. I added a few dashes of cumin, chili powder and red pepper flakes to the stew while it cooked and the spice level was perfect. Will be making this again, thank you!

      Overall a great recipe with some unique flavors. The sauce is not really a sauce, maybe a salsa if anything. I liked the idea of having an actual sauce on the top so I put it through the blender. The cooking times are very approximate and I found the squash needed longer than specified. Mine was still fairly watery at the end, so I stirred the peanut butter directly into the stew and it thickened up nicely.

      This is a favorite Veggie Times recipe in our household! It's a perfect autumn or winter stew & it's not too peanutbuttery in taste. The cool cucumber sauce really makes the dish! A must have!
