Ghanaian recipe of Groundnut / peanut soup.

Ghanaian recipe of Groundnut / peanut soup.


Ingredients
# salt and pepper, to taste


# 2 large onions, finely chopped


# 4 large very ripe tomatoes or


# 13 ounces canned tomatoes


# 6 1/2 ounces creamy peanut butter


# 3 1/2 pints boiling water


# red chilies, to taste


# 4-8 mushrooms


# Meat – Any meat of your choice, pork, beef, fish or chicken.


Directions

 
1. Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water, peel off the skin and blend the

flesh to a smooth juice. If using canned tomatoes, blend. Cut the meat


into small pieces, wash and season with salt, garlic and chopped


shallots. Add a little water, put it on the fire and allow to boil for about


10 minutes.


2. Put the peanut butter into a big bowl, add 3/4 pt. of the boiling


water and use a wooden spoon or a blender to blend the peanut butter


and water carefully together to form a creamy, smooth sauce.


3. Mix together the tomatoes, peanut butter mixture, red chilies and


mushrooms.


4. Continue to simmer, stirring only occasionally to prevent the food


sticking to the bottom of the pan. This is now the basic soup.


5. Pour the rest of the boiling water into the soup and simmer slowly


on medium heat for 20 mins or so.


This Ghanaian recipe soup is usually served with FUFU, an Akan


dumpling made from yams, plantinas, cassava or even processed


potato flakes. The FuFu should sit like an island in a sea of soup.This


is a dish that is traditionally eaten with your fingers – even the soup!!
