   In a nonreactive pot, saute the onions in the
   broth/wine on medium heat for 4 or 5 minutes.  Add the
   cabbage and the chile or cayenne and continue to
   saute, stirring often, until the onions are
   translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the grated ginger
   andthe water, cover the pot, and bring to a boil. Stir
   in the sweet potatoes, sprinkle with salt, and simmer
   for 5 or 6 minutes, until the potatoes are barely
   tender.  Add the tomatoes, okra, and lime juice.
   Simmer until all of the vegetables are tender, about
   15 minutes.  Stir in the cilantro and add more salt to
   taste. Sprinkle the stew with chopped peanuts.  Top
   with a few sprigs of cilantro, if you like.
