Chard, Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

Tonights dinner!

2 tbps of sunflower oil
1 large onion chopped
1tsp cumin seeds
400g of sweet potatoes, cut into medium chunks
1/2 tsp of crushed chili flakes
400g  can chopped tomatoes
140 g salted, roasted peanuts (I used almonds)
250g of chard, leaves and stems and washed and roughly chopped
750ml of water

1. heat a large saucepan with lid over a med heat and add oil.  Add the onion and fry until light golden.  Stir in the cumin seeds until fragrant, about a 1min.  Add the sweet potato, chili flakes, tomatoes and water.  Stir cover and bring to a boil then uncover and simmer for 15 mins.

2. Whiz the peanuts in a food processor until ground but not butter.  (yeah I put the almonds in a zip bag and let my four year old beat the crude out of them). Add to stew and stir and taste for salt.

3. add in the chard and treturn to a boil for another 8 mins... or about the time the kids start yelling "When's dinner????" Serve hot and with pepper (hey I didn't write this... taste it ... spicy...)
