Hey Divas,

I just thought why not try a recipe that is different from the one I’m used to, well, at the end of the day, I was not disappointed. Maafe is a recipe that originated from Mali and it is a great meal, some people actually substitute the peanut with groundnut, it all depends on your taste and preference. Serve with any meal of your choice.


Hello World



  • Onion (chopped)
  • Fresh ginger (minced)
  • Garlic (minced )
  • Chicken (boneless cut into chunks)
  • Cayenne
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly grounded black pepper
  • Water
  • Potatoes or Yams (peeled and cut into thick slices)
  • Tomatoes
  • Collards or kale, washed and cut into wide ribbons
  • Peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
  • Groundnut oil


  • Chop peanuts, or crush them with the side of a knife, or pulse them in a food processor to chop roughly.
  • Put little groundnut oil in a deep skillet or medium saucepan over medium heat; a minute later, add onion, ginger and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Add chicken and continue cooking for another 3 or 4 minutes, until just coloring. Add 1/2 cup peanuts and the cayenne and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Stir in the stock and the sweet potatoes, bring to a boil, and turn heat down to medium-low so the soup bubbles gently. Stir in tomatoes and collards, then cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in 1/4 cup peanut butter. Taste, adjust seasoning (you may want to add more peanut butter at this point) and serve, garnished with remaining peanuts.
