African Kale Soup

Ok, I hesitated on the title of this one.  It was dictated to me by one of my favorite farmer's at the Middlebury Farmer's Market and when I told the kids about it they questioned the use of peanut butter in a dish called "African".  Anybody?  But I Googled the main ingredients and sure enough, a bunch of African Soup recipes popped up.  So, here's to my friend at Neshobe Farms whose recipe earned five out of six thumbs up in my household (one refused to try it at all- his loss).  With my own additions:

1 chopped onion
3 cloves minced garlic
2 chicken breasts cut up into small pieces
1 bunch chopped kale
1 minced red pepper
2 shredded carrots
1 Tb olive oil
1/2 c. crunchy peanut butter
1 20oz can crushed pineapple (drained)
1-2 cups chicken broth (depending on desired consistency)

Serve over rice.

This reminds me of one of my favorite things to eat ever - have you tried Thai dishes with peanut butter in them? Who knew, but it's amazing.
