Sweet Potato Peanut Stew
The savory broth and chunks of hearty sweet potatoes make this vegetarian stew satisfying enough to serve for dinner.
Omit oil. In a 4-quart slow cooker combine peppers, onions, ginger, garlic, allspice, cayenne pepper if desired, sweet potatoes, broth and tomato paste. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Before serving, in a medium bowl whisk together coconut milk and peanut butter. Stir into cooker until smooth. Serve with mango slices and Toasted Peanut Butter Sandwich Bites, if desired.
Toasted Peanut Butter Sandwich Croutons:
Spread 2 slices of white or wheat sandwich bread with peanut butter and top with 2 additional slices of bread. Brush both sides of each sandwich with oil or melted butter. In a skillet over medium heat, cook sandwiches until golden brown, turning once. Cut into cubes.
