Vegan African Peanut Soup with Sweet Potato and Chilli

Vegan African Peanut Soup with Sweet Potato and Chilli

This vegan African peanut soup is not an authentic recipe, but my take on a West African dish – adapted for busy modern lives. African style peanut soup sounds very exotic, doesn’t it? It tastes pretty exotic too. My adaptation takes just 20 minutes and […]
