Yam and Peanut Stew with Kale

I love peanuts. I love kale. And I love a rich, hardy one pot meal with enough flavor and textural interest to keep me eating happily all week. West African Peanut yam stew with kale tics all those boxes. Which is why it’s a go to for me in the winter. The trick is to add the kale after the soup is turned off so it keeps its texture and color.

Kenyan Polenta with Peanut Sauce

This recipe is from page 36 of The Ethnic Vegetarian.

Polenta polenta polenta. I love polenta. I love polenta so much that I can’t keep it in the house because if I do it’s all I’ll eat. I’m perfectly happy to eat three meals a day polenta… anyways…what was I saying? Oh right, so when I saw POLENTA in The Ethnic Vegetarian I was in. Very interesting idea. I’d never think of paring pairing peanut sauce and polenta. Indeed the pairing was quite yummy. I really enjoyed the recipe. Solid.
