Oh yummy!

2 cups water
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp cumin

In a large saucepan, saute the onion and garlic in oil until onion begins to soften. Add the cabbage and sweet potatoes and cook over medium heat for a few minutes until cabbage softens.

That's why I like it!
I'll be making this soon too, as soon as I make a lot of other dishes I've put on my "short list" lol

I prepped the onions, garlic and cabbage ahead of time, - sauteed in the oil,because I wanted to make this in the crockpot.
Then added all the rest.
I'll let it go all day until dinnertime, so the sweet potatoes can cook and the flavours blend well.

It already smells like heaven in here.
