Delicious! I wasn't sure about the peanut flavor with soup, but it works surprisingly well. I altered a few things to what I had on hand (used less bell pepper, and honey roast peanut butter - omitting sugar.) I'm the only soup & vegie lover in my house, but I'm sure I'll finish off this pot of soup all by myself.

I made this as a trial for work on Monday. It is so good I can't believe it. Easy, fast, tasty and beautiful to look at, just what I wanted for my dinner next week (and I'm so glad that we got to eat the trial run!) I used a reduced-fat PB, added a tablespoon of lemon juice, and garnished the soup with cilantro. Thanks Friedel for a great recipe-now I must try your other soup (Garlic, Chick-pea and Spinach) I have in my cookbook.

I made this recipe last night, and it is truly amazing. It upstaged everything else I served at dinner. I followed the recipe mostly to the letter, though I did saute the vegetables a bit longer, and also simmered them in the water a bit longer. I used a red bell pepper instead of yellow, because yellow are a lot more expensive, and I used a can of sweet potatoes so I wouldn't have to peel and cut a fresh potato. It all turned out wonderfully. This is my new favorite soup recipe!

This made a lovely dinner on a rainy night. I cooked in the slow cooker and also added 1T lemon and some coriander as Jan advised.Thanks for a nice dinner.

What a fun soup! I saw the ingredients and just had to see for myself how they all worked together. After putting it together and allowing it to simmer 30 minutes, I was hooked. I love the richness, the just-right peanut flavor, and the slight spice afterglow. I used my immersion blender and left it a little chunky. Thanks for sharing this outstanding recipe, Sackville Girl. I can't wait to have a dinner party now! One side note, I'm a quick and careless cook and I found the recipe hard to follow as I had to jump around in the list of ingredients. As a result I cooked the green onion with the soup and almost missed the garlic completely. (That would have been a shame!!)

This soup is Great. Ever since I saw a TV program about the Soup Nazi's (New York City) Peanut soup being one of his best sellers, I've lusted after what I imagined it tastes like. This MUST be it! If this is not same recipe I would be surprised. I made mine quite spicy. I found Portuguese "hot paprika" to have a full earthy taste with just enough spice-heat so you could use lots. This seemed to add another dimension in the right direction, which I liked very much. 5 exclamation marks for this one !!!!! Lyman Toronto Canada

Delicious. Different. I would make this again! I did make some changes; halved the cayenne (DD not keen on spicy), and used a red pepper. Still very flavorful w/o too much heat. Great for a quick winter meal.

Wow. Just wow, This soup is outstanding! I did add 3/4 cup PB, only because I love it so much. I had a bowl of it tonight with a piece of naan. So easy and pretty quick to prepare!
