Readers, brace yourselves, I’m about to share with you my favourite meal: yup, that’s it, peanut stew. We’ve been making this on a weekly basis for quite some time now, and it only occurred to me to write about it when I realized 1) Just how economical it is, 2) That it’s loaded with protein! (Oh, and it tastes really really good). I initially found this recipe on the vegan stoner but modified it to include meat and make it lower carb as well. So here’s how you do it:
1 can of crushed tomatoes
roughly about the same amount of crunchy peanut butter
1/2 a large onion
3 large carrots
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Chop up the onion and carrot (I used rainbow carrots so some of them are yellow!), and saute on a lightly greased pan (I used extra virgin olive oil).
While the carrot and onion are cooking mix the crushed tomatoes and peanut butter in a separate pot and bring to a boil.
Chop the chicken into chunks and mix in with the carrot and onion, stirring until fully cooked.
Add the chicken, onion, and carrots into the stew, reduce the heat, and let the flavours mix for a few minutes. That’s it, you’re done!
A couple notes: 1) This recipe makes a LOT of stew (I just love it so much that I always end up freezing it and having it later in the week)! 2) This meal is very dense and filling so you don’t need very much to feel satisfied (remember, nut butters are quite high in calories – but they’re also awesome for you)!
