I am currently (as you read this) in Kenya, so I thought I'd leave you with at least one African recipe. This one is actually from the Moosewood cookbook, but it's similar to many recipes on the African continent, where peanuts are often used to thicken soups and stews.
This one is a deeply flavorful and spicy concoction of tomatoes, peppers, onions, curry powder and cayenne with a squeeze of lime. It's vegetarian, too.
