Smooth and creamy goodness. My husband who adores PB was in heaven! I added 1/3 cup tomato juice to thin the soup instead of water and seasoned it up with salt, pepper, and extra ginger. Served with bread for dipping. Thank you, JackieOhNo! [Made for the Best of 2011 Tag Game]
Perfect as written-wouldn't change a thing! Lots of flavor and the cayenne gives it a bit of a bite (I admit my "dash" was about 1/4 tsp) :) I added some chopped unsalted peanuts to the green onion for the garnish. Thanks for this keeper! Made for ZWT 7 Vegetarian Challenge.
