This satisfying, warming soup is delicious all year round. It’s very versatile, so feel free to add any produce odds & ends you have around. I love to make this soup when I’m running low on fresh produce, because a lot of this recipe comes from pantry staples.

West African Peanut Soup
- 2 cans diced tomatoes, 15-oz cans, including juice
- 1 large onion, diced
- 1 bell pepper, chopped
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 2 carrots, sliced
