Sweet Potato Stew

Am I going to get in trouble for using  the words "peanut" and "butter"?  
Sorry, but I am trying to get some help here.
This recipe was in a vegetarian cookbook I got from the library.  Yes, I know 
it has fat in it (just under 12 grams per serving), but can someone help me 
with what to sub for the peanut butter.  It is an excellent recipe, but 
doesn't at all qualify as lowfat. I don't use hydrogenated peanut butter, so, 
if I let the oil separate from the peanuts would that do much of anything to 
bring it in to the "lowfat" category.  I suppose that the quantity of peanut 
butter could be cut down, too, but I am looking for creative ideas from you

and ginger and saute another minute.  Add sweet potato and cabbage.  Saute a 
few more minutes, stirring occassionally (add water or veg stock as necessary 
to stop from burning/sticking). Add paprika and cayenne, and stir well to 
incorporate in to veggies.   Add chopped tomatoes and pineapple juice.  Cover 
and simmer until potatoes are tender.  Add peanut butter, and stir well.  Add 
lime juice and cilantro and serve.
