Recipe for my Vegan West African “inspired” Peanut Stew

1 Tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
1 large sweet potato
1 medium onion
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp Trader Joes 21 Seasoning Salute
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1 6oz. can tomato paste
1/2 cup Jif peanut butter
6 cups vegetable broth
1/2 bunch collard greens (4-6 cups chopped)
1 tsp cilantro

Instructions using Instant Pot
Peel and grate the ginger using a small holed cheese grater. Mince the garlic, and dice the onion. Sauté the onion, ginger, cilantro and garlic in a large pot with the olive oil on saute setting on Instant Pot until the onion becomes soft and translucent.
While the onion, ginger, and garlic are sautéing, peel and dice the sweet potato into 1/2-inch cubes. Add the sweet potato cubes, cumin, 21 seasoning salute, turmeric, and red pepper to the pot and continue to sauté for 2 minutes.
Add the tomato paste, peanut butter, and vegetable broth to the pot. Stir until the peanut butter and tomato paste have mostly dissolved into the broth. Place a lid on the instant pot and let it cook on sauté setting for about 5 min.
While the soup is cooking, prepare the collard greens. Use a sharp knife to remove each stem (cut along the side of each stem), then stack the leaves and cut them into 1/2-inch wide strips. Place the chopped collard greens in a colander and rinse very well
Once the stew has cooked for about 5 minutes and the sweet potatoes are starting to soften, stir in the collard greens. Let the stew cook for about 20 minutes more or until the collards reach your desired tenderness, then begin to smash the sweet potatoes against the side of the pot to help thicken the stew. Hope you try it and I hope you like it:-)
