Powerhouse African Yam Stew
This African-inspired yam stew with split peas and red lentils is a nutritious powerhouse flavored with peanut butter, lemon, and soy sauce.

Split peas should be placed in a big container with several inches of cool water on top.

Soak for an hour.

In a big pot, mix red lentils, yams, onions, and split peas that have been drained.

Add enough water to cover the area by one inch.

Ginger and garlic are combined.

Bring to a boil; using a slotted spoon, skim foam from the surface.

About one and a half hours of simmering should produce very tender yams.

Use a potato masher to mash lentils, yams, and split peas.

Add soy sauce, peanut butter, and lemon juice to the soup.

Add chickpeas and frozen spinach, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until thoroughly heated.

Use salt to season.
