A vegan stew based on peanuts? Such an interesting combination makes me curious and this is definitely something I need to try. Normally I associate stew with meat. But this vegan version, African peanut stew, is absolutely a must. I found the inspiration for this dish on veggiefunkitchen. This is a site that specialises in creating vegan version of classical recipes.
I was in doubt for a long time on how to classify this recipe. At first I felt it was a meal soup. And as mentioned before, I associate stew with meat. But I stay with my second thought: it is definitely a stew. The crunchy peanut bites convinced me finally.
I am not a hardcore vegetarian or vegan. But you can make the most interesting and surprising vegetarian and vegan dishes. And I regularly do! That are of course also very tasty! The important thing is that you like what you eat. Then the label has only second most importance. Whether it be vegan, vegetarian, keto, flexi or whatever.
How to measure peanut butter?
Measuring peanut butter (and similar substances) can be quite a mess. But on veggiefunkitchen I found a great tip to do this more efficiently. I first measured the vegetable broth. Then I re-calibrated the scale and added the peanut butter to the broth. No sticking and no need for scraping!
