Veganized African Peanut Soup


This recipe is something I grew up eating. It had to have been one of my favorite foods I can remember from my childhood. I especially loved eating this soup with rice or boiled plantain. When I first went vegan, I initially decided to give up on all traditional African food as they are in no way, shape or form vegan. At the time, I didn’t know of ways to create vegan options.

Recently, I began to have a strong craving for this peanut soup (blame pregnancy hormones lol). I headed to my kitchen determined to find a vegan version which tasted close to the way my mom used to make it,,, and, Tada, this recipe was born. I was blown away by how good the final product was and also how it tasted just like what my mom used to make…minus the oil and all the other not-so-good-for-you crap.
