    Sephardi Kitchen's Note:

    Variations of peanut (or groundnut, as they are locally called) soups and stews are eaten across West Africa. I adapted this recipe from several different cookbooks + my own preferences. Savory, spicy, filling, healthy and quick to make! Omit the chicken for a vegan version and/or feel free to add in more vegetables (yams, eggplant, or squash could be good, I think). *NOTE* If possible, try to use Berbere if you don't have berbere on hand . Cayenne is an acceptable substitute, but really doesn't do the dish justice like Berbere would. Even just adding a pinch or two of the different spices in the Berbere mix would suffice!

      This was surprisingly delicious! After awhile the peanut butter flavor was overwhelming, but I would still make it again!
