Pineapple Peanut Stew

I know it sounds like a weird combo, but it is delicious. I generally do not like fruit in my savory foods, but this is an exception. This is one of our favorite meals. We have it at least twice a month. We would have it every other day if it were up to Jon! The best part is that it's fairly quick and very easy.

Here it is!

1 chopped onion
several chopped garlic cloves
any other chopped veggies you want-sweet potato and carrot are good
1 28 oz can tomatoes or 2 small cans
1 cup water
1 can pineapple or 2 cups fresh chopped
1 cup peanut butter

Saute the onions and garlic in a large pot until tender. Add the sweet potatoes, carrots, or whatever veggies you are using and saute for a few more minutes. Add the cup of water, tomatoes with liquid, and pineapple with juice. Stir it up, cover it, and simmer on low until the sweet potatoes and carrots are soft. This usually takes 20 to 30 minutes. Right before serving, stir in the cup of peanut butter. You can add green onions, sour cream, and/or chopped peanuts to the top if you want. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and serve over any kind of grain (rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc.) or over a bed of greens. Or you can just eat it on its own. It's even good cold the next day. Enjoy. :)
