Peanut Tofu Stew

Have you been drawing a blank on ideas for dinner? How about trying this simple vegan peanut tofu stew! Thank me later, after your family or friends clean up their plates and ask for seconds.


I love hearty stews that are full of flavour. Adding peanut butter to a vegetable stew may sound crazy, but trust me, it works. This is my take on the popular African dish.


There are many different versions of this peanut stew from all around West Africa. With different typical spices and ingredients you can find African peanut butter stews in many different guises in different regions. It might often have ginger, onions or groundnut in it – but this is my non-authentic vegan version!


This peanut tofu stew is definitely a must try in my honest and humble opinion. With time from prep to eating under 45 minutes, you can get dinner on the table in record time. Not only is it delicious, its also healthy and super easy to make.



Food always feel like an incredibly intimate way to get to know a country, to understand the role food plays in a culture and to experience the flavours that form the backdrop to people’s lives.


As I was cooking this stew I got absolutely giddy with excitement. I love the ingredients. It’s a rainbow of nutrients in one bowl and you can just feel the goodness. That’s how food should be—outstanding in both flavor and nutrition. This stew definitely makes the grade.

There are many different versions of peanut stew, so I pulled my favourite aspects from the many versions I’ve seen.


The spices work beautifully with the creamy peanut butter in this nourishing and vibrant dish. It’s my ultimate comfort food. Adjust the spices to your preferred heat level and feel free to substitute any vegetables you have on hand.




This vegetable peanut stew is thick, loaded with healthy vegetables, very filling and has the most amazing, slightly sweet and perfectly peanut-ty flavour.


I like to finish this dish with some crunchy chopped peanuts and a handful of chopped parsley to lift the creaminess. Serve on it’s own or with rice for a more filling meal. If you have any leftovers, it’s delicious served on a baked sweet potato
