A “Must Try Recipe”
I’m back today to introduce you to a “must try recipe” developed by a fellow registered dietitian, Lisa Andrews, from her recent cookbook called Heart Healthy Meal Prep book.
Full disclosure, this is already the second time I’m making this recipe! We made this recipe while visiting our kids, and everyone at the table gave the recipe two thumbs up! So now that we are back home, we are ready to cook this delicious, warm, and comforting Sweet Potato Peanut Stew for Thanksgiving. Before we get started, I just want to point out a couple of key attributes to this book. Yes, it’s a cookbook, but it also helps with meal prep for six weeks – including the meal plan, shopping list, and step-by-step meal prep tips for each week. Thumbs up.

Follow My Instructions
1 – In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat.
2 – Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes until the vegetables are softened.
3 – Next, add the spices- cumin, allspice, ginger, and cayenne and stir to coat.
4 – Next, stir in the tomatoes, sweet potatoes, vegetable broth, and peanut butter.
5 – Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot and simmer for 25 minutes while stirring occasionally. You want to cook the stew until the sweet potatoes are very soft.
And the stew is now ready to serve. I’m serving this stew with a side of steamed vegetables and smoked turkey breast.
