From "Moosewood Cooks at Home": West African-inspired, this is a rich and very fresh-tasting stew, eclectic and surprising in its combination of ingredients. If you have a few extra leaves of kale, put them in; this stew can absorb a lot of greens. Any leftovers will make a good soup when thinned with tomato juice or water.

Recipe Ingredients for Pineapple Peanut Stew

1 cup onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
4 cups swiss chard (or kale)
20 oz. crushed pineapple (undrained)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tbsp. Tabasco
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

Recipe Directions for Pineapple Peanut Stew

  1. In a covered saucepan, saute the onions and garlic in the oil for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onions are lightly browned. While the onions saute, wash the kale or swiss chard. Remove and discard the large stems and any blemished leaves. Stack the leaves on a cutting surface and slice crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices.

  2. Add the pineapple and its juice to the onions and bring to a simmer. Stir in the kale or chard, cover, and simer for about 5 minutes, stirring a couple of times, until just tender. Mix in the peanut butter, tabasco, and cilantro and simmer for 5 minutes. Add salt to taste, and serve. Serve on rice, millet or couscous, topped with crushed peanuts and chopped scallions.
