Africa South of the Sahara By Nancy Lazarus SOUPS West African Peanut Soup If you''re a person who loves peanuts, but thinks they were made to eat at baseball games or on bread with jelly, think again and get ready for a culinary adventure. This peanut soup is rich and spicy. The chopped scallions or chives are an integral element, not just a garnish. Serves 6 to 8 2 cups chopped onions 1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil 1/2 teaspoon cayenne or other ground dried chiles (or to taste) 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger root 1 cup chopped carrots 2 cups chopped sweet potatoes (up to 1 cup white potatoes can be substituted) 4 cups vegetable stock or water 2 cups tomato juice 1 cup smooth peanut butter 1 tablespoon sugar (optional) 1 cup chopped scallions or chives Sauté the onions in the oil until just translucent. Stir in the cayenne and fresh ginger. Add the carrots and sauté a couple more minutes. Mix in the potatoes and stock or water, bring the soup to a boil, and then simmer for about 15 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. In a blender or food processor, purée the vegetables with the cooking liquid and the tomato juice. Return the purée to a soup pot. Stir in the peanut butter until smooth. Taste the soup. Its sweetness will depend upon the sweetness of the carrots and sweet potatoes. If it''s not there naturally, add just a little sugar to enhance the other flavors. Reheat the soup-gently, using a heat diffuser if needed to prevent scorching

About the Author
is run by a group of 18 women
and men who rotate through the jobs necessary to make a restaurant
go. We plan menus, set long-term goals, and wash pots. Our ranks
are bolstered by about half a dozen employees.
Major decisions are made collectively, and while democracy at
work and at meetings has required effort and determination, the
payoffs have been rich. Most of us have worked together for nearly
ten years, and some of us since the restaurant''s inception in
1973. Personally, we are an assortment of individuals who have
become a family -- caring deeply for one another, striving for
fairness and consensus, and putting-up-with and letting-go-of
various human foibles. Professionally, our collective process has
worked well for seventeen years. Come visit!
