Continuing our January theme: more delicious Frugal + Vegan action this week!
West African peanut stew – aka ‘maafe’ or ‘domoda’, depending on region – is super flavourful and rich. It was first served to me by my friend Kat who trained in West African dance (and is a total natural at it). This version is fully plant based. Recipe adapted from simple-veganista.com.
Sweet potatoes are in their high season. Order some as an extra for your veg box.
Variations: If you don’t have enough sweet potato to hand, you could supplement with carrot and/or winter squash or pumpkin. In fact, just add some chopped carrots from the box anyway – carrot and peanut is a tasty combo. For the greens, try kale in winter, spinach in summer. Spring greens would also work well. Bump up the spice if you like. Add a tin of beans – e.g. black beans or black-eyed beans – for extra protein power, fibre and texture.
Serve with brown rice, ideally, but white is fine too. Or naan-style bread.
Have you ever tried the organic ginger we stock at Regather? It’s superb. I might be biased, but it really is.
