African Spinach and Groundnut Stew (Aka Peanut, Kenya/Tanzania)

African Spinach and Groundnut Stew (Aka Peanut, Kenya/Tanzania) created by Debbie R.

This is from "Best of Regional African Cooking". The original calls for 1/2 c. finely ground unsalted peanuts. That's too much work, so I substituted peanut butter. This is a very thick, rich vegetable side. It is not a stew like we think of stews in the US. My husband liked it, and it is the only spinach dish he will eat.
