Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté the onions in the oil for about 10 minutes. Stir in the cayenne and garlic and sauté for a couple more minutes. Add the cabbage and sweet potatoes and sauté, covered for a few minutes. Mix in the juices, salt, ginger, cilantro, and tomatoes. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender. Add the okra and simmer for 5 minutes more. Stir in the peanut butter, place the pan on a heat diffuser, and simmer gently until ready to serve. Add more juice or water if the stew is too thick.

This is the second time I've made this recipe and I really love it! I add kale, spinach and freshly grated parmesan cheese.

One of my favorites! It's very easy and everyone loves it. I have tried other groundnut stew recipes (even another one from Moosewood) that I don't like as much as this one. Only use fresh okra, it really makes a difference!
