Ghana Peanut Soup Recipe

Ghana Peanut Soup Recipe

This soup has become one of our favorites. It’s easy to make and tastes fantastic. The inspiration for this recipe comes from Ghana but this soup is common in much of Africa. I have to admit I was a little worried about how this one would turn out, especially as I was making it. I thought it smelled like it was burning right from the start, but when we tasted it my fears were put to rest. This even made great easy leftovers for lunch up to a few days later. Peanut soup has become a dish that I will keep experimenting with and I hope you do too.
