A friend found this recipe for a very yummy and hearty soup in an issue of Vegetarian Times. It's originally called "African Chickpea and Spinach Soup" but I modified it to reflect my own Thai-loving taste buds. The original recipe can be found here:

  2. Blend peanut butter and 1/2 cup broth in food processor to make smooth paste. Blend remaining broth into mixture.
