Ghanaian groundnut soup

Yield: 10 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Peanut butter
6 ounces Tomato paste (can)
8 Chicken breasts [cut up]
1 large Onion [cut up]
3 quarts Water
1 tablespoon Cornstarch (or more)


This is a copy of an old Ghanian [from Ghana] recipe a friend gave my mother about 30 years ago. Kinda interesting. It's authentic, but I think the real thing needs some serious hot sauce added.

Combine ingredients in large pot or pressure cooker. Cook until meat is tender. If using pressure cooker, I cook it at 15 pounds pressure for ½ hour. Scrape oil from top. Add corn starch if the gravy is too thin. Serve over rice.

Beef or pork maybe substituted for the chicken, and if your family enjoys fish, a quick way is to cook the ingredients (except meat) until the onion is tender and add a large can of tuna or other fish.

For variety, you might like to substitute rat, lizard, or lion meat!! ~Ruth Cuthbertson
