*The Looneyspoons recipe calls for 3 cups of broth, but I use 4 cups for a couple reasons:
1. Most broth cartons are 900 ml, i.e 4 cups and I hate wasting that last cup (because it inevitably wastes away, unused in my fridge despite best intentions).
2. This is a thick stew, and I find it needs that extra liquid.
*The Looneyspoons recipe calls for 1/2 cup diced celery and 1/2 cup diced green pepper, which I replace with 1 cup of chopped green beans. Reason: to please the little people in my life.
*The original recipe calls for 2 tbsp of peanut butter, but I top it up to 3 tbsp. I just find it that much yummier. I suggest starting out with 2 tbsp, tasting, and adding a little more to suit your tastebuds.
