45 minutes
  • 2 large onions, finely chopped
  • 4 tblsp. peanut oil
  • 2 cups pumpkin, winter squash, or sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped in chuncks
  • 4 turnips
  • 4 medium potatoes, quartered
  • 2 large carrots, chopped in chuncks
  • 1/2 of a small cabbage, coarsely chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 bunch of fresh leafy greens (spinach, Swiss chard, turnip greens, etc.), or 1 small package frozen greens
  • 2 chili peppers, or 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter

Brown the onions in the moderately hot oil in a large, heavy skillet or stew pot. Add the vegetable, one at a time, sauteing each for a minute or so before adding another.

Stir in tomato sauce, along with about a cup of water, reduce heat, and simmer until all vegetables are tender. Spoon out about half a cup of hot broth and mix it with the peanut butter to make smooth paste. Add to the pot, and simmer for another 10-15 minutes. Serve over rice or a stiff porridge.
