King's Arms Tavern Cream of Peanut Soup

King's Arms Tavern Cream of Peanut Soup created by Greg B.

This recipe is our favorite from The Williamsburg Cookbook. We had to buy the cookbook after having this at the King's Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. It is quite tasty served hot with toasted breadsticks (see recipe titled "Colonial Soup-Servers") This soup can be served hot or cold. It is even good re-heated.

    This wasn't bad, but it SCREAMED for some salt. I obliged with some soy sauce. Then it turned out that a few drops of sesame oil gave it a nice Asian twang. Individual cups or bowls can be doctored as the eater sees fit. I also added some left over spaghetti noodles to mine, since the ingredients resemble a peanut sauce I make for noodles. It was quite good!

    Instead of removing from the pot to a food processor or blender, I use an immersion blender in the pot after removing pot from heat. Much less chance of spilling or making a mess. Simple immersion blenders are not expensive. I have a Cuisinart immersion blender and use it all of the time.

    AWESOME recipe!! I stuck to the recipe (but doubled it) and it turned out delicious. I made it for a cold-weather outdoor potluck after an equestrian event, and it was a huge hit.
