Ready In:




  • Heat the broth to a bare simmer and, in a small bowl, stir together the peanuts and ½ cup of the broth until the mixture forms a paste.
  • Stir paste into the simmering broth, add chili peppers, bell pepper and onion, and bring to a boil.
  • Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes, or until the soup thickens to desired consistency, and season to taste.

  1. Very tasty, nutritious, and easy. The little bit of ground peanut crunch was nice. I did a vegan version with a peppersoup spice mix and a little tapioca in place of the beef broth. I would use a tad less hot pepper next time.
  2. This is really good! I've never really had anything like this and I loved it. It has a wonderful flavor. Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
  3. I halved this recipe perfectly. MMMM! I was sooo not expecting to like this as much as I did. I was pleasantly surprised! I think next time I would try replacing ground peanuts with peanut butter for a smoother soup but this was still quite tasty! Thanks EV!


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
