Guest Recipe: African Peanut Stew

logoI am so excited to bring this recipe to you all and share one of the best flavor profiles I have ever tasted. I have been waiting all summer long to get back into my favorite place on the Outer Cape, 141 Bradford. Conveniently, the name is also the location; 141 Bradford St in Provincetown.

In the summer here, because of lack of parking, it’s nearly impossible to stop in so I passed by with a grumbling belly more often than not. Since the summer has ended, and Autumn has started to settle in, I’ve been in to 141 Bradford multiple times and things are right with the world again.

I’ve been on a soup kick lately and dropped in for a bowl a couple of days ago. They had three soups on for the day. Two of them were veg and to be honest, besides the African Peanut Stew (which is what I got), I can’t remember what the other two were. All I know is I wished I had bought a second bowl.

I finished my bowl Truro on the way toward Wellfleet for a trouble call. While taking care of the customer and fixing their issue all I could think about was the stew and how could I get more. I could ask for the recipe! Ya! Oh and the wheels began turning. Maybe I can get the recipe and share it here with you, because, you have to try this!! So I messaged them on Instagram and they agreed! YAY!

Since 141 makes their products in larger quantities, I took liberty to break this down to a 1/3 of the recipe. The measurement for 1/3 is in the parenthesis and the original is left there if you want to make a bunch of it and freeze it.

Without further ado, here is the recipe.
