Ginger Peanut Soup

"Did you know that peanuts are not really nuts but are actually a type of bean? Peanuts are sprayed with an array of pesticides and herbicides, so try and use organic peanut butter in this recipe. It will taste better. (This recipe is from the cookbook "How It All Vegan".)"

    Wonderful creamy soup with lots of good-for-you veggies! I did make a few substitutions, though. I had no cauliflower and used some chopped kale instead, and instead of PB I used macadamia nut butter (just what I had around.) The combo of ginger with the slight hint of nut butter was awesome. On the second day I added some mung bean sprouts and a little tamari. I can see this being very versatile as far as add ins. Ginger and garlic lovers - add a little extra, these two flavors really add a lot to this great soup!

    We've made this recipe several times, and it's really good and so easy. I like that there are few ingredients, it's not too tomato-ey. It's very good as it, and it's also really easy to add to depending on what's in the fridge, carrots are nice, bell peppers. Thanks for a great recipe!

    This soup is fantastic. AND its quick! Even my 2 year old who was not hungry at all had a few spoonfuls once he had tasted it. Normally soup is a complete waste of time with him. The 5 year old also ate it without complaint. I bet this soup will be even better tomorrow...IF it lasts that long!

    This was wonderful. I made the recipe as posted and it came out as I expected it to. It's not too creamy and definitely comfort food for a winter evening. The recipe makes a lot, so tomorrow I might add some sliced roasted chicken on top. Thanks so much for this "keeper" of a recipe Miel.
