This hearty West African dish, also known as groundnut stew, domoda, or maafe is always made with plenty of vegetables. The characteristic flavor and richness come from creamy peanut butter, a common ingredient in that region. It’s typically eaten from a large communal bowl by using your hands and is served over couscous or rice.
