Ingredients
  

  • 6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger peeled and minced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 medium sweet potato diced
  • 1 bunch hearty greens of your choice (kale or collards work well) ribs removed and chopped into 1″ strips
  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • hot sauce of your choice
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped peanuts for garnish

Instructions
 

  • In a medium pot, bring the broth to a boil. Add the onion, ginger, garlic, sweet potato, and salt. Cook on medium for 20 minutes.

  • Serve over quinoa or a grain of your choice if desired, and top with a sprinkle of chopped peanuts.
