Lightened Up Vegan Groundnut Stew

In my quest to lower the calories in some of my favorite dishes, I purchased some PB2 (powdered, low-fat peanut butter).  I have been experimenting and enjoying it immensely.  You see, peanut butter is one of my favorite foods ever!  Don't get me wrong here, I am not giving up peanut butter, but I am replacing it in some of my recipes to lower the calories. 

My groundnut stew is so delicious, but the original recipe is very high in calories.  To make this lightened up version, I used 1 tbsp of toasted sesame oil in place of the 1/4 cup of olive oil and replaced the peanut butter with PB2.  I am pleased to say it worked beautifully! I served it with millet that I cooked with turmeric, lemon pepper and cilantro.  

Yum! Both The Boyfriend and I are big fans.
