African

This West African inspired stew is packed with butternut squash, shredded kale and two types of nuts – ground almonds thicken the stew, while peanut butter gives it a delicious sweet, rich & satisfying flavour. It's plant-based too, so you'd be nuts to miss out! (Gluten and dairy-free, suitable for coeliacs).

1 African Squash, Peanut & Kale Stew

Boil a kettle

Rinse the brown rice, add it to a pot with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 20-25 min or until it's tender with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain and return it to the pot and keep covered until serving

2 African Squash, Peanut & Kale Stew

Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the brown onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a matching lid with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the sliced onion and cook for 6-8 min or until starting to caramelise 

Once caramelised, add the ras el hanout and cook for 1 min or until fragrant

3 African Squash, Peanut & Kale Stew

Meanwhile, dissolve the vegetable stock cube[s], peanut butter, ground almonds and 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar in 450ml [700ml] boiled water – this is your nut stock

4 African Squash, Peanut & Kale Stew

Once fragrant, add the butternut squash cubes to the ras el hanout and cook for 1-2 min further

5 African Squash, Peanut & Kale Stew

Add the nut stock and cook, covered, for 8-10 min or until the butternut squash is fork tender

6 African Squash, Peanut & Kale Stew

Meanwhile, chop the coriander finely, including the stalks (save some leaves for garnish!)
