Senegalese Peanut Soup

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Carianne

From a WW cookbook. Very tasty and quick. Low in calories and fat (chickpeas stretch the peanut butter flavor). Only 4 WW points per serving!

I thought this was tasty and it relies on things that I pretty much always have in the pantry, a plus. I changed the recipe around a bit. I started with step 2. I added the chickpeas and the peanut butter in at step 4, and simmered everything for probably 10 or 12 minutes to make sure the chickpeas heated through. I then took the stick blender to it. I used 1 tbl of curry powder and some red pepper flakes instead of the cayenne. I might use less broth or add a potato to this, it was just a bit thin for me. Might add just a bit more peanut butter. This is a very good soup for very little effort.
