Peanut Stew with Spinach & Miso

Peanut Stew with Spinach & Miso

This is a substantial, creamy peanut stew with plenty of spice from a good dollop of curry paste – use either your favourite brand or a homemade one. Canned crushed tomatoes are easy to find, but this soup gains extra depth of flavour with fire-roasted tomatoes. While the miso paste could be optional, it’s a nice addition which lends extra body and dimension.
