Sweet Potato & Peanut Stew

I had read good things about this dish, but also that this was due to some tweaking here and there, and so I did a bit of my own tweaking and here's hpw this hearty vegan dinner came to life - it's SO tasty! Technically this could serve one hungry human, buuuut then again - maybe serve this with some rice ooooor serve up a dessert? Either way, this is delicious! And I love how all the flavours come together so well, will definitely make this again!

After a good portion of this, I had two little pumpkin pancakes waiting for me in the fridge, sorted!

Sweet Potato & Peanut Stew
(Serves 2, about 320 calories each)

1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium red onion, chopped
200g sweet potato, diced
400g chopped tomatoes
1/2-1 tsp hot chilli powder (depends how hot you like it!)
1 tbsp peanut butter
200g greens, I used round lettuce, but you can use spinach, chard, cabbage, whatever!
A handful fresh basil, torn (optional)
200-300 vegetable stock
Pepper to taste
25g roasted and salted peanuts for garnish
Rice or bread to serve (optional)

- Start by bringing a medium pan on the hob on fairly high heat, toast the cumin seeds for about a minute until fragrant, then tip in the oil and onion and soften for a couple of minutes.

- Then, add the sweet potato, chilli powder, tomatoes, peanut butter, stock and basil (if using), cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.

- 15 minutes later, it is all looking pretty delicious, no? Tip in the greens and stir until wilted, add pepper to taste before serving! Top it off with some lovely salty peanuts, and you're ready!

Ooooft, going to the dentist's today, which is by far my favourite place.... Wish me luck!
