Peanut Butter Soup

Recipe by reya doucette

A very creamy and delicious soup, wholesome too. Great to have on a cold day. I am told this recepie comes from Africa. Sandra Phinney made this amazing soup for a winter lunch and got it off the internet and modified it out of her own imagination. You can use smooth or crunchy peanut butter.

I have to say that this soup is phenomenal!!! My husbans is Bolivian and all traditional dishes are just so difficult to make (very lengthy process) and so I had heard that they make a "Sopa de Maní" or Peanut Soup. I had to try to make it and I impressed all of his family, the aunts, the uncles...everyone! They said it was better than theirs!!! SO THANK YOU =) !
