How do you make African Peanut Stew?

Simplicity is at the heart of cooking this meal prep recipe, and it comes together in a truly snappy way! You can start by heating your olive oil on medium in a 4-quart pot or Dutch oven. Next, add your chopped sweet potatoes, celery, and onion, then cover and cook for 10 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and coriander and continue to cook covered for 5 minutes longer. Stir in your canned tomatoes, vegetable stock and sea salt, then heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender. Mix in the peanut butter, lime juice and kale and cook for 5 minutes longer, making sure that your kale wilts.
