Plant-Based Peanut Butter Vegetables… so, what do you do with the last of your leeks, broccoli and cauliflower? Well, why not try my delicious plant-based peanut butter vegetables? I was a bit stuck as to what to make, so I raided my store cupboard and pulled out some peanut butter, fresh ginger, red onion, garlic and some spices to create this dish. It’s amazing what you can do when you think you’ve got nothing in the house!
Don’t forget, broccoli and cauliflower are powerhouses from the vegetable patch, plus, as with all veg, they’re loaded with fibre. If you find that you have other vegetables, this sauce works equally well with potatoes, carrots, green beans, peas, squash and pumpkin to name but a few.
It tastes amazing whatever veg you use! Go gone, give it a try and let me know how you get on.
- 1 red onion (finely chopped)
- 1 garlic clove (crushed, then chopped)
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger (grated)
- 2 teaspoons garam masala
- 1 can tin chopped tomatoes (400g/14oz)
- 400ml/3/4 pint/1 and half cups coconut milk
- handful broccoli florets
- handful cauliflower florets
- 1 leek (sliced)
- 100g/3.5oz crunchy peanut butter (100% peanuts, no oil or salt added)
- handful fresh coriander (finely chopped)
- 20 or so flaked almonds, toasted
- brown rice (amount depending upon how much you want)
- Cook the brown rice as per the packed instructions.
Add two inches of cold water to a large saucepan, then add the onion and garlic, cook until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
- Add the leek, cauliflower, broccoli, fresh ginger, garam masala and cook for another two minutes. Stir well to ensure the ginger and garam masala are mixed with the vegetables.
- Add the coconut milk, peanut butter and canned tomatoes. Stir all the ingredients together then cover and simmer for about 20 minutes. Keep an eye on the mixture to ensure it doesn't catch on.
- Just before serving add the fresh coriander then serve with brown rice and sprinkle over some toasted sliced almonds.
I hope you enjoy my delicious Plant-Based Peanut Butter Vegetables as much as I do. What do you think? Did you make them?
