  1. Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook and stir yams, onions, cabbage, tomatoes, coconut, and garlic in the hot oil until the vegetables are slightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Pour tomato juice and apple juice into the Dutch oven; season with ginger, cayenne pepper, and salt. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook at a simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Stir bell pepper and peanut butter into the mixture. Cook, stirring regularly, until the peanut butter is melted completely into the soup, about 30 minutes more.

I used a whole cayenne pepper instead of the powder, a large apple instead of the juice, and diced tomatoes instead of the juice. Wonderful comfort soup kind of soup!

The whole family loved this! After I sauteed the veggies I threw them and all other ingredients except the pb into the crockpot. Put uncooked green pepper in at begiining as well. Sitirred in PB...

Different… a little on the sweet side but very good!

Everyone loved it!
