    I still remember the time I tasted a West African peanut stew. Unbelievable. I’m sure there are hundreds of ways to make it, and this sounds very simple to prepare. Would you add any vegetables to this?

  15. April

    I don’t like too much peanut flavor unless it’s in a dessert and even with desserts I don’t like too much unless it’s combined with chocolate lol. Yours look delicious but I would prob only use 1/4 cup.

    1. Fred Nonterah

      You can do it that way too if a cup is overwhelming. Thanks April!
