No matter how long you live in a foreign country, you will always be a child of the place where you were born – and in my case, that would be Africa. The inspiration for this soup comes from spicy traditional African groundnut and chicken stews. Although no less hearty, this recipe takes those flavors and adapts them to make a soup that’s both vegetarian and deeply satisfying in a way that only the taste of home can be.
