West African Spinach with Spicy Peanut Sauce

West African Spinach with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Dishes flavored with peanuts and spiced with chiles are found throughout West Africa. This spinach dish is typical and delicious served over rice or couscous. Let your own heat tolerance be your guide on the amount of chiles to use. If you prefer, hot red pepper flakes may be substituted for the chiles or they may be omitted altogether for a mild yet flavorful dish.
