I found this in the flier at the local co-op. Putting it here so I don't lose it. Description reads "..This vegetarian version of a popular West African dish features a spicy peanut and tomato sauce that is often made with chicken or beef, and served over rice or couscous". I plan to try this without the cayenne.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, saute the onions and sweet potatoes until browned. Add carrots, turnips, tomatoes and broth and boil over medium heat until carrots are cooked.
  2. Whisk together tomato paste, peanut butter with a little hot broth until smooth - add to the pot along with the cabbage. Bring back up to temperature and season with salt, pepper and cayenne. Garnish with cilantro.
