Peanuts are the star of this hearty plant-based stew that's inspired by the cuisine of West Africa. Featuring superfoods like sweet potatoes, collard greens, and millet, it uses the humble peanut two different ways: peanut butter to thicken the brothy base, and roasted and chopped, to provide a crunchy contrast to the tender vegetables.
