Updated: Jun 22, 2018

This hearty stew is rich with flavors, colors, and nutrients. The coconut, peanut, and curry give this dish an exotic flavor. It’s easy to prepare and very inexpensive. Serve as a stew or over brown rice.

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 40-45 minutes

Yields: 6 serving


2 onions, sliced into half rings

1 carrot, diced

3 celery stalks, diced

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 sweet potatoes, cut into ½-in cubes

1 cup low-sodium vegetable stock

One 28-ounce can diced tomatoes

1 tablespoon curry powder

1 teaspoon sea salt (or salt to taste)

¼ teaspoon black pepper

1/3 cup all-natural peanut butter (100% peanuts)

1 cup lite coconut milk

One 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

2 cups chopped frozen spinach


1. Add all the ingredients to a pot and cook over high heat until bubbly, 10-15 minutes.

2. Turn down heat and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.

Kim’s Hints: If using an Instant-Pot, place all of the ingredients into the Instant Pot liner and stir to mix ingredients. Cook on high Pressure for 6 minutes. When the timer beeps, turn off the pressure cooker, wait 5 minutes, and then quick release.
