Cabbage and peanut butter

This is a Zimbabwean side dish served with Sadza a thick maize meal porridge similar to the Italian polenta.

Serves 4-6 people

1/2 medium cabbage chopped medium slices
1 medium onion finely chopped
2 tbl spoon peanut butter
3 tbl spoon water
1-2 dried birds eye chilli
salt to taste
2 tbl spoon vegetable cooking oil

In a medium pot heat oil and saute onions until nice and soft, add cabbage and fry lightly until tender.
In a cup mix peanut butter and water to a smooth paste
Add to fried cabbage and mix well ensuring the peanut butter is mixed through the cabbage.
If the cabbage seems too thick to stir add a little more water.
Your spoon should be free to stir in the pot.
Add 1-2 dried birds eye chilli depending on the heat you would like and salt to taste.
Great with bbq (braai) meat and Sadza (Zimbabwean staple maize porridge /Italian polenta)
