  • Summary

    This recipe is a promise of warmth on those cool autumn nights. Habanero chiles and peanuts both feature heavily in Nigerian cuisine, and this soup is an adaptation of a long-simmered stew common to much of West Africa. Don’t be afraid of a chile with seeds: The fragrant oils from these peppers are worth every bite. The peanut butter and coconut milk mellow the warmth of the chile to a gentle, lingering heat, but you can also take the chile out before the soup is puréed. An optional spoon of honey to the soup will round out the flavors, and a dollop of crème fraîche or yogurt will further temper the heat. Serve with a baguette or sourdough bread for dipping.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, peeled and diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
    • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
    • 1 (1-inch) piece ginger, peeled and chopped
    • 1/2 habanero or bird's eye chile
    • 1 (14-ounce) can pumpkin purée
    • 3 cups water or chicken or vegetable stock
    • 1 (13-ounce) can coconut milk
    • 1 tablespoon agave or honey (optional)
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened natural peanut butter
