Very tasty. The peanut butter makes this rich but it's not overly done. I added one small sweet potato and some cilantro after reading the reviews (plus I just happened to have them on hand). I served this with a side of roasted cauliflower. Made for the Jan 09 veggie swap.

this was very good, I used regular milk in place of the soymilk and used homemade chicken broth in place of the veggie broth, I also added in some cayenne pepper, next time I will add in some different veggies, thanks for sharing Syd!

You've got a winner here Sydney Mike! I love love love this soup! It was easy to make, although it has a very complex taste. I used lite coconut milk in place of the soymilk and cut the peanut butter back to 1/2c to cut a few calories, if you aren't watching calories I'd say go all the way with the pb! I added the flour/water combo at the end, but probably wouldn't bother to add it the next time. I did add the hot sauce and very much enjoyed the end result. Made for Holiday tag.

Absolutely delicious! I had to make several changes due to health problems and a finicky husband. (1) I used 4 tsp. no-salt chicken stock powder instead of vegetable broth. Naturally, 4 c. of water with that. (2) I used 6 oz. tomato paste instead of diced tomatoes due to a no-seeds restriction, along with one additional cup of water. (3) I minced about 15 baby carrots. He won't eat diced. (4) I used 2 percent milk, and will try evaporated nonfat milk next time for more creaminess. (5) I used cayenne pepper for heat. (6) I used the optional flour trick. It was *so* good! Picky husband went back for huge seconds! Thank you so much! I have been wanting to make this for decades, didn't want to use chicken meat, and this was really, really good. P.S. Mine looked thicker than the one in the picture.

This soup turned out interesting to us, though it's our fault! DH added a bunch of vanilla flavoring and honey to our soymilk this morning when he had breakfast today without telling me. So when I added the soymilk to the soup it turned out a little different than it should've. We thought it was a great soup despite the strong vanilla flavor and since it was that flavor that was the only thing keeping this from being 5 stars I added the fifth star because I'm sure it would've measured up to that had we not made the mistake! Thanks Syd! Made for ZWT4 - Los Jefes de la Cocina!

Haven't been cooking with peanut butter until just recently - now I wonder what took me so long! Liked the vegetable broth base for this soup and was genereous with the veggies - a delicious supper soup. Loved the dash of hot sauce!

Very easy to make and it's a great combination of ingredients. I made this with skim milk instead of soy and added the optional hot sauce. I still thought it was rather bland. I would love to make this again and use coconut milk for the soymilk and add lots of chopped fresh cilantro. Maybe even a diced yam. That sounds awesome. Thanx for sharing this!
