Pumpkin Peanut Stew with Chickpeas

serve with a homemade protein chapati

By: Anne-Sophie Hoffman
Life without peanut butter? Sure, it’s possible, but why? Everyone knows about PB&J, but there’s so much more to this kitchen talent than sandwiches and satays. Today, it shines in a peanut stew with seasonal fall vegetables. And just to make sure you can sop up all the last drops of your peanut stew, we’ve thrown in a recipe for a homemade protein chapati on the side.

    1  onion , 1  chili
    Chop the onion. Slice the chili into thin rings.
  • Ingredients:
    500 g butternut squash

Our tip Pumpkin Peanut Stew with Chickpeas

Our Tip: What kind of pumpkin to use in your peanut stew

When the temperatures start to drop, stews are a life-saver. Warming and packed with balanced ingredients, they warm you from the inside out, while pumping you full of the power you need. Not sure what kind of pumpkin to take? Here in Germany, we love a good Hokkaido - also sometimes seen as red kuri squash or sunshine squash. These sweet, small- to medium-sized pumpkins are not only a happy orange color; they taste sweet and nutty and are a breeze to prepare. Because the skin is edible, you don't need to peel them - just give them a good wash and you're good to go! If you can't find a sunshine squash, try a butternut (peeled).
