West African-Inspired Chicken and Peanut Stew
Our recipe is similar to a Senegalese Maafe, a hearty, comforting stew that cooks low and slow to evolve many complex layers of flavor. This recipe makes a large portion and is perfect to meal prep ahead of time to either eat later in the week or freeze for the future. Click here for the full recipe.
- Chicken is not a necessity for this recipe and can be omitted or substituted with beans.
- One important “ingredient” to the flavor of this dish is time!
- Ingredients that add to the complex and unique flavor of this dish are onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, and peanut butter.
