I love this soup! I got the recipe from the Moosewood Cookbook. I can easily eat 2 bowls at a time and have to stop myself from eating more. Fortunately, it's pretty good for you. I like the extra flavor of chicken broth so I use broth in place of water, which renders it non-vegetarian, however.

Really nice & unusual. We went without the celery, used crushed chili & crushed/pureed peanuts. We might add a potato with the carrots next time, too.

Love this recipe from the Moosewood Daily Specials. It's so good. I didn't have chili paste so I used 2 cloves of garlic a habanero pepper. My husband, who loves things spicy, really loves it. Thanks for posting.

This recipe immediately attracted me because it had some of my favorite ingredients in it (especially the chili paste). I had no peanut butter but wanted a peanutty taste so I took a slightly different approach. I chopped all the veggies, and cooked them as described then added a handful of regular peanuts into the soup and let them cook in the soup. I then blended everything just to puree smooth the nuts. The resulting taste and texture was outstanding. Thanks for the inspiration

I love this recipe, someone at work had given it to me. I use fresh chiles and homemade fresh peanut butter. The taste is amazing although it sounds very weird. The peanut butter makes it filling with a great combo of tastes- sweet, salty and spicy. MMMMM

It was very easy to make. I omitted the celery (didn't have any) and used 1/4t cayenne instead of chili paste. It tasted great but it called for way too much water. I put in 4c water and realized that it would be really thin once pureed so I added 1 lg potato to fill it out a bit. I turned out great though. I might add the potato again next time.
