Never in my life would I think that such a peculiar list of ingredients would mesh so well together.

The ginger is the star of the show and a great complement to the peanut butter, while the jalapeno adds a welcome heat that cuts through the richness of the sauce. You’ll never feel as satisfied with your cooking as you do after you serve this dish -- an exotic, nourishing African recipe that's rich in flavor. The simplicity and ease with which it's made can be our little secret!
My brother was given this recipe by a fellow Peace Corps volunteer while living in Tanzania. I've made this dish for countless family and friends, and everyone, regardless of culinary tastes has loved it! If you're cooking for a large group, it's very easy to double this recipe. It's also a wonderful recipe to have handy since it is vegan and gluten-free.
