Top Review by CompulsiveReader

Thanks to jessi-ryan for suggesting keeping the rice separate until after blending; that's what I did. I substituted vegetable bouillon for the chicken broth, but since the soup turned out a bit bland, I'll try the broth next time. I'll also try adding a little more crushed red pepper and a little less peanut butter. Interesting flavor, though, and filling!
