Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

I had a lot of comments on my dgit blog for this recipe so I thought I would share on this blog. It is really quite delicious even though it is a vegetarian recipe. I honestly wish it made just a little more!

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew
3 medium sweet potatoes
1 Tbsp oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 cans garbanzo beans (drain and rinse)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can vegetable broth
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup loosely packed chopped cilantro

Cut sweet potatoes into 1/2" cubes and microwave for 8 1/2 minutes. Meanwhile, put oil in stock pot and warm on medium heat. Add oil, garlic, cumin, cinnamon and salt.

Add garbanzo beans and tomatoes and veg broth. Mix and then add peanut butter. Once all mixed and sweet potatoes are done, add and stir in with cilantro.

*My sweet potatoes were not done from microwaving so I just cooked them longer in the stew- which I think next time (because there will be a next time because it is so delicious) I would try to cook the sweet potatoes completely in the stew.
