African Spinach and Peanut Butter Stew from Food.com: Found online at www.fooddownunder.com, while looking for economical 'African' recipes. Tasty and nutritious, a vegetarian main dish or a good side dish. You could easily add garlic, cooking it with the onions, add some mushrooms, adding with the tomatoes, and I think some chilli, fresh, powdered or flaked, would also add a bit of spice to this very versatile dish!
South African - Roasted Eggplant Salad from Food.com: This recipe is from a website called South African Traditional Recipes and has been posted here for the ZWT-7 Tour of South Africa. It sounds excellent.
