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!!)
Fabulous soup. I have made this soup several times and each time have had to pass your recipe on! Just plain YUMMY Ms. Belltree
We LOVED this soup.....it was delicious and our guests were amazed at my cooking abilities. This recipe is a keeper!
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!
