We are going to begin this recipe by getting out a large dutch oven or stock pot. Add the butternut squash to the dutch oven, we opted to use frozen because it is so convenient and easy to use. If you are feeling fancy, you can roast a fresh butternut squash in the oven with some water and then add it to the stew. Chop up the carrots, bell pepper, and potatoes into a nice stew size or smaller if you prefer and add them to the dutch oven. Add in the chopped jalapeño too, but feel free to leave it out if spice isn’t your thing.
Then, add in the tomato paste, peanut butter, and veggie broth. If you are a garlic and onion lover, feel free to add some in! A great option would be a bag of the frozen chopped onion and a couple tablespoons of cheater garlic. Get creative with the recipe and add what you have on hand and what you enjoy. Once everything is in the dutch oven, bring it up to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, and allow to cook for about 20-30 minutes. Make sure to stir the stew periodically as it is simmering. You can cover it as well to avoid splatter.
While the stew is cooking, we are going to make roasted peanuts to sprinkle on top of the stew. All you need to do is grab a handful of raw peanuts and roast them in the oven at 350°F for a couple minutes. Keep an eye on the peanuts, because they burn fast (we know from experience)! Then, take the peanuts and break them up. We use a knife and chop them, but you can use a mortar and pestle or smash them with a mason jar. Set the peanuts aside for now.
Then, we are going to chop up the cilantro to serve on top of the stew. If you aren’t a fan of cilantro try using a different herb like parsley or basil. Another great way to add flavor to this stew is by adding some Well Your World Stardust Salt Substitute for that salty flavor without the sodium, Galaxy Dust Table Blend for a burst of savory flavor, or Calypso Caribbean Seasoning Blend for a citrus Caribbean flavor.
