Ginger Peanut Stew
This rich, warming stew from Bastyr nutrition student Lizzie Diehl travels and reheats well. Serve it over brown rice, and share it with a neighbor.
Heat oil in 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and ginger and cook until onion softens, stirring frequently. Add the coriander and cayenne and saute, stirring, for 1 minute.
Once the spices are fragrant, add zucchini, vegetable stock and canned tomatoes. Bring soup to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini and tomatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
Add peanut butter and nutmeg and whisk to combine. Simmer a few minutes more, then add salt and pepper to taste. Serve, garnished with chopped cilantro.
To reheat, first stir in an additional ½ cup vegetable stock or water. Then bring to a simmer on the stovetop.
