West African Ground Nut Stew
Widely cultivated across the African continent, ground nuts (peanuts) are an important crop. Because they are a leguminous crop, ground nuts contribute to soil fertility by fixing nitrogen and because they are high in protein, ground nuts also contribute to the nutritional state of communities. Many FRB supported programs train farmers on the cultivation and nutrition of ground nuts. Inspired by a recent FRB trip to visit programs in Malawi, Zambia, and Mozambique. FRB volunteer Judi Frost shares this recipe for groundnut stew.
