Ingredients

Number of serving: 2
3 bunches of greens

2 large or 3 small habanero or Scotch bonnet peppers, minced, stems and seeds removed.

6-7 canned plum tomatoes, chopped, plus about a cup of the tomato juice.

1 very large or 2 medium white or yellow onions, chopped

1 vegetable bouillon cube

1/2 cup creamy peanut (groundnut) butter - no salt or sugar added!

1 package unseasoned seitan, chopped into shredded "stew meat" sized pieces.

3-4 tablespoons peanut oil

salt, pepper, and ground hot red pepper to taste

Preparation

  • In a large stockpot, saute the onions over medium heat in the peanut oil until they're just starting to brown; about 15-20 minutes.
  • Add the habanero peppers and saute for another 5 minutes. Add the wet greens and stir well; put the lid on the pot for about 5 minutes to allow the greens to wilt in the steam.
  • Next add the chopped tomatoes, tomato juice, and vegetable bouillon cube. If necessary, add a little water until the greens are just covered in liquid - but not too much. You're making stew, not soup.
  • Add a few pinches of salt and pepper. Taste the broth - if it's not hot enough for you, add a pinch or two of powdered hot pepper.
  • If it's too hot at this point, don't worry - the peanut butter will offset the heat somewhat.
  • Bring the heat down to a simmer and cook until the greens are tender. Meanwhile, mix the peanut butter with a couple of tablespoons of hot water.
  • Once the greens are tender, add this mixture, along with the seitan, to the stew. Simmer gently for another 15-20 minutes; taste and adjust the salt, pepper, and hot pepper to your taste.
