West African Sweet Potato Stew

Makes: 6 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes



  1. In a large pot, heat the coconut oil over medium high heat. Nestle the chicken into the pot, and sprinkle with 1tsp salt and 1tsp black pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side until it becomes golden brown (it does not have to be fully cooked) and remove from the pot.
  2. Lower the heat to medium and add the sweet potato, onion, ginger, garlic, tomato paste, and the remaining salt and pepper. Stir to scrape up any browned bits from the pot and cook for 10 minutes until the sweet potato begins to soften.
  3. Slice the chicken into smaller pieces then place back into the pot. Add the almond butter and stock. Stir until the almond butter melts and let the soup simmer on medium heat until it thickens, about 20-30 minutes.
  4. Before serving, stir the kale into the soup. You just want to warm it up, not cook it – about a minute or so.
