African Peanut Soup (slow cooker)



  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tins of chopped tomatoes
  • 0.5 litre vegetable stock
  • 0.25 tsp black pepper
  • 0.25 tsp chili powder (optional)
  • 100g uncooked brown rice
  • 150g peanut butter (to add later)
  • dollop of sour cream and a bit of Tabasco sauce (optional)


  1. wash and chop all of the vegetables, and put into the slow cooker. Add the tins of tomatoes, the uncooked rice, and the spices.
  2. pour in the vegetable stock
  3. cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for about 4. The soup is done when the onions are fully cooked and are translucent.
  4. stir in peanut butter, and cook on high for 20-30 minutes, or until fully heated through.
  5. add a dollop of sour cream and a touch of Tabasco sauce if required
I thought DD1 would love this, but she was being a bit uppity & refused all the food I gave her today, so I’ll maybe try this again one day, although I wasn’t that keen & I don’t think DH was either.
