What Is In This Low Carb Stew

Where Does African Peanut Stew Originate?

This Groundnut Soup is native to Nigeria and is eaten with yams instead of rice. However, it is very popular in Taiwan, Virginia (US) and Ghana.

Needless to say, no matter where you live, this is a delicious comfort meal.

Does African Peanut Soup Taste Like Peanut Butter?

It depends. Do you want it to?

The peanut butter flavor intensity in this Groundnut Stew is entirely up to you and how much peanut butter you add to the broth.

The best way I can describe this is that the African Soup Recipe should have a clear hint of it, but not be overwhelmed by it.

How To Make This African Peanut Soup

  1. Add chopped onions and garlic to the Instant Pot.
  2. Add chicken breast and frozen mixed vegetables to the inner liner.
  3. Pour in remaining spices.
  4. Add chopped swiss chard or other leafy green of your choice.
  5. Pour in water and seal your Instant Pot. Cook under high pressure for 10 minutes. Let pressure release naturally.
  6. Mix in the peanut butter a little at a time. Taste with each addition as your reward for cooking.

Tips And Tricks For Making Groundnut Stew

  • The final sauce should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon in a thin layer.
  • Feel free to sub whatever you want that sounds better/meets allergy needs, such as sunflower butter for peanut butter.
  • Make sure you add the peanut butter gradually and give it a taste every time you add a bit more. You want a slight peanut butter taste, not an overwhelming one.
  • Use whatever greens you have in your refrigerator to make this a healthy, well-rounded recipe.

Instructions

  • Put in all ingredients except peanut butter into your Instant Pot and set your cooker to High Pressure for 10 minutes. I used a frozen block of chicken thighs which took about 15 minutes, so just adjust cooking time based on what cut of meat you’re using.
  • Allow it to release pressure naturally and open the lid carefully.

  • Mix in the peanut butter a little at a time. Taste with each addition as your reward for cooking. Taste the peanut butter too, make sure it’s good stuff.

  • Serve hot and enjoy!
