PEANUT SAUCE

 

To go with rice like we used to get at Senegalese.

3 tbs oil
2 tbs tomato paste
˝ - 1 tsp of your favorite piment (hot pepper)-(amount depends how bien intégréd you were or still are)
˝ tsp salt
1 beef boullion cube- (they sell Maggi in Stop and Shop!)
1 cup water-or more depending on the density of the peanut butter you're using
˝ cup peanut butter
˝ cup diced onion

Sauté tomato paste, hot pepper, salt, onion and bullion cube in oil for a few minutes. Add peanut butter and water. All natural peanut butter is better than the processed type because it doesn't have any sugar that clashes with the salt. Mix and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Makes enough sauce for 3 servings (1˝ cups dry rice). Can also be used for Ingame pilé. Stop and Shop sells white sweet potatoes like they used to serve with rice and peanut sauce at "Senegalese." They call this "Boniato" and sells for .99/lb.

Serves 4.
