Felice Bogus, of Raleigh, N.C., came up with this stew while trying to “find something interesting to do with peanut butter beyond just making PB&J sandwiches,” she says. VT staffers went nuts for the super-chunky texture and peanut-y flavor.


  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 medium tomato, peeled and diced, juice reserved separately
  • 11-inch piece fresh ginger, sliced
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium onion, diced (11/2 cups)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1 Japanese eggplant, cut in 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice (2 cups)
  • 1 1/3 cups brown rice
  • 1 7-oz. pkg. Gardein Chick’n Filets


1. Bring broth, reserved tomato juice, and ginger to a boil in saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, covered, 30 minutes. Discard ginger slices; set broth mixture aside. 

2. Heat 1 Tbs. oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and sauté 7 minutes, or until softened. Add tomato paste, and cook 2 minutes. Add eggplant, and sauté 2 minutes more. Add peanut butter, cayenne (if using), and 1/4 cup broth mixture; stir until smooth. Add sweet potato, diced tomato, and remaining broth; simmer, uncovered, 1 hour, or until sweet potato is tender.

3. Meanwhile, prepare rice according to package directions.

4. Heat remaining 1 Tbs. oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add Chick’n Filets, and cook 3 minutes per side. Remove to cutting board, and cut into chunks. Stir Chick’n into stew, and serve stew over rice.
