Spicy African Peanut Stew

I made African Peanut Stew after I researched a handful of recipes and combined them into the dish I prepared. One thing I would do different next time, I would make it a little thinner.  I would add 1/2 the peanut butter and an extra can of tomatoes. Suggested changes NOTED in ingredient list below.


  • 1 cup TEFF grain

  • 1 cup brown lentils

  • 1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil

  • 6 cups of water

  • 2 cups of canned tomatoes (NOTE: I would add 4 cups)

  • 1 cup peanut butter (NOTE: I would add 1/2 cup)

  • 2 cups diced carrots

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp cloves

  • 1 tsp nutmeg

  • 1.5 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1.5 tsp mustard seeds

  • 1.5 tsp caraway seeds 

  • salt and pepper to taste (at serving)

NOTE: If you do not like spicy ... start with 1/2 the quantity of spices. After you prepare the dish you can taste and decide if you wish to add the other 1/2. If you like REALLY spicy food, you may with to add even more!


  • Brown the teff, lentils, and spices in a warm pot (on low) with the oil 

  • Add water, stir to combine, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, and cover

  • After 10 minutes, stir, and add the carrots and cook for another 5 minutes

  • After 5 minutes add the tomatoes and peanut butter, stir, and cook for about 10 minutes

  • Serve with a side of gluten free bread, gluten free croutons, or sprinkle with parsley
