This may be one of my favorite dishes of all time! The combination of flavors does not disappoint. If you've never tried African Peanut Stew, this is your sign to give it a shot. It's really easy to make, and is the perfect recipe if you've got too many tomatoes in the fridge that need to be used. Really budget friendly and utilizes pantry staples like kidney beans, peanut butter, garlic and onion. Enjoy!
