A good friend for couscous


This was my first African food. My sister got the recipe from her sister-in-law’s husband. He comes from Cameroon and made this dish for them. Then my sister taught me how to prepare it.

I changed a little bit the way of preparing it (he boils the cabbage in extra-water) due to laziness…. And I always eat it with couscous (due to you know what).

For about 2 big servings you need:

about 1/2 onion
1/4 cabbage
1 can of tomatoes (about 400 g)
about 2 big tblsp of peanut butter
1/2 tsp vegetable stock (instant)

Chop the onions, sauté them in oil. Cut the cabbage, add it and add the tomatoes. Bring everything to a boil. Mix the peanut butter with hot water (add one tblsp after another) until it’s quite liquid and add it to the rest. Let simmer until the cabbage is tender. Season with instant vegetable stock and salt – I always add a little bit of chili, too.
