This Sweet Potato and Lentil Peanut Stew is a quick and easy dinner that provides plant-based protein and will please the whole household!
This recipe is adapted from the African Peanut Stew from Oh She Glows cookbook. I was trying to think of the very first time I tried the original recipe and realized it was about 7 or 8 years ago! If my memory serves me right, it was the weekend of one of my dietetic internship interviews and I was visiting friends that lived in the same city. They made me this recipe and I loved it so much, I had to take a photo of the cookbook! Fast forward to today and I have made a few tweaks along the way. Here are the modifications I made:

One of my favourite things about this recipe is it’s versatility. If you make it for yourself you will have leftovers for days (yay, easy lunches!) or can freeze the extras for later. Alternatively, if you are cooking for your family or a group of people, this is a crowd pleaser. It is also suitable for a variety of dietary preferences like vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free/lactose intolerant. So in addition to the comforting flavour and satisfaction level, this stew checks all of the boxes!
