MUAMBA NSUSU (Congo Chicken Soup)

Ingredients

This soup has much in common with other African peanut soups and sauces.

  • 1 whole chicken, cut up, any parts, any amount
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Organic Red Palm Oil
  • 1 small can of tomato paste
  • ½ cup peanut butter (natural or homemade, containing only peanuts and salt)
  • Hot chili pepper or cayenne pepper, to taste

Fill a large pot with enough water for soup. Bring it to a boil. Add the chicken and boil it until the meat is done and a broth is obtained.

While the chicken is boiling, gently sauté the onion in several tablespoons of Red Palm Oil until the onion is tender.

Remove the chicken from the broth and remove meat from bones. (Save the broth and keep it at a low simmer.)

Combine one cup of the chicken broth with the peanut butter and tomato paste and stir until smooth.

Return the chicken meat to the broth and add the peanut butter-tomato paste mixture. Stir and continue to simmer until the soup is thickened.

Season to taste. Serve with rice.
