Spinach & Spicy Peanut Sauce

You can find dishes flavored with peanuts and spiced with chiles throughout West Africa. Let your own heat tolerance decide how many chiles you use. Crushed red pepper flakes may be substituted for the fresh chiles.

Serves 4

What You Need:

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 or 2 hot chiles, seeded and minced
  • 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 pound fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • Salt to taste

What You Do:

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and chiles. Cover and cook until softened, about 7 minutes.
  2. Stir in tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until wilted. Add peanut butter and salt to taste, stirring to make a sauce. Serve over hot grains.
