Spiced Peanut Pumpkin Stew
 
Serve this hearty, vegetarian stew over quinoa on cool fall day. Curry and pepper flakes bring heat to yams and pumpkins and this an exciting peanut soup.
Ingredients
  • Olive oil to drizzle your Dutch Oven
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 yam or sweet potato, diced
  • 1 – 28 oz can of fire roasted tomatoes, crushed
  • 1 small can of pumpkin (16 oz)
  • ⅓ cup of creamy peanut butter (I recommend organic)
  • 3 tablespoons of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or soy sauce
  • 3 teaspoons of curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon of hot pepper flakes
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 can of beans – I used black but kidney or chickpeas would also work Salt and pepper
  • Garnish: Fresh cilantro leaves and chopped peanuts
Instructions
  1. Place your Dutch oven over medium heat and drizzle about a tablespoon or more of some olive oil in your pan. Heat up and then add your chopped onions, carrots, potato and cook for about 6 minutes.
  2. Then add your tomatoes, pumpkin, peanut butter and liquid aminos or soy. Give a good stir and let simmer for 4 minutes.
  3. Then add the spices, broth and beans. Reduce the heat and cover. I let this cook anywhere from 1-4 hours stirring occasionally. Taste and add salt and pepper as necessary. Serve immediately with your choice of garnishes.
