Oh my gosh! It’s getting hot in here O! Cooking seems to be getting more and more interesting. I definitely hate ‘Monotony’…the word even sounds boring!
If one is not careful, a typical Nigerian wife could bore her husband to death with the same old recipe of rice meals, yam, beans, garri. After, stumbling on this recipe, I now believe that “Variety is the spice of life”!
So here is an interesting recipe for wives who like to experiment with food…
Cook rice according to package directions; cover and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a 5- to 6-qt saucepan or stockpot, heat oil on medium. Add onions and sauté, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeños, curry powder and ginger and sauté for 1 more minute.
Stir in broth, tomatoes and peanut butter. Add potatoes and chard and increase heat to medium-high. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook until potatoes and chard are tender, uncovered, 12 to 14 minutes. Season with salt.
Divide rice among serving bowls. Top with stew and cilantro.
