Nigerian Groundnut Soup

Back in 1974 when our children were young and my wife was concerned about women’s issues, we got a Ms Magazine that had a number of recipes from around the world that children can help with. So Joyce helped our two girls make them. The one from Nigeria called groundnut soup was especially good so 28 years later here is a recipe that would be fun to make with your children.
1 large potato
1 medium onion
1 large tomatos
2 cups water
1 veggie broth bouillon cube.
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shelled, unsalted, roasted peanuts (or 1/2 cup peanut butter)
1/2 cup milk
2 Tablespoons rice
1. Peel the potato and the onion.
2. Dice the potato, onion, and tomato into very small pieces.
3. Place in the saucepan with the 2 cups of water, the bouillon cube, salt.
4. Boil the mixture gently with the lid on for 30 minutes.
5. Chop the peanuts with the chopper. Put in bowl and combine with milk. (if using peanut butter mix with milk until smooth.)
6. Add the peanut mixture and the rice to the potato, onion, tomato, and water.
7. Mix well with a spoon.
8. Lower the heat and cook at a simmer for 30 minutes or more.
Pour into soup bowls and serve.
