Living on the Veg

Peanut butter veggie stew


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Put the cubed sweet potato on a baking tray with a drizzle of rapeseed oil, season with sea salt and black pepper and roast for 30 minutes. Put a large saucepan on a medium heat with a tablespoon of rapeseed oil.

Add the onion and garlic, reduce the heat to low, pop a lid on the pan and cook until the onion has softened, around 5 minutes. Take the lid off, turn the heat back up to medium, season with sea salt and black pepper and add the spices (cumin, coriander, paprika, chipotle paste). Stir for a minute to combine.

Add the courgettes and pepper and cook for a further 5 minutes to soften the veg slightly. Pour in the chopped tomato, season again with salt and pepper and cook on a low heat, without a lid, for 25 minutes. This should soften the veg and reduce the sauce. At the end of the cooking time, stir in the peanut butter, kidney beans, roasted sweet potato and spinach and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Check that it’s seasoned to your liking and add more sea salt and black pepper if required. Serve with a generous helping of crunchy Mild Chilli Munchy Seeds.
