African Stew

My friend Laurie Stapleton gave me this recipe years ago. It's quick, easy, and healthy--and I've never served it to anyone who didn't love it.

4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion, chopped
3 cans black-eyed peas, drained & rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes with juice
1 c. peanut butter dissolved in 1 c. hot water
8-10- oz. spinach, torn

Saute garlic and onion for a few minutes in a small amount of oil. When onion is softened, add beans, tomatoes, and dissolved peanut butter. Simmer for a few minutes. Add spinach and cook until it wilts.

Here's the result.

I make only one modification. I add red pepper flakes to the dissolved peanut butter.

I hope you like this as much we do.
