Peanut Butter Soup

When an old roommate offered me some of her peanut butter soup, it didn’t sound too appetizing but I couldn’t deny that it smelled really good and it turned out to be a very satisfying meal. I never got the recipe, but found that I had luck winging it. Do a search for “Peanut Butter Soup” for recipes that have more precise directions.

Peanut Butter Soup
  • Olive Oil
  • Onion, medium, chopped
  • Garlic, a handful minced
  • Peanut Butter, 1 large TBS
  • Water, 1 cup
  • Milk, 1-3 cups
  • Cayenne Pepper, 2-3 shakes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Spinach (optional)
  • Carrots (optional)
  • Tomatoes (optional)
  • Garbanzo Beans (optional)
  • Rice (optional)
  • Noodles (optional)
  1. Warm oil.
  2. Sauté onions and garlic on medium heat. Do not burn. You could include celery and carrots at this point if desired.
  3. Stir in peanut butter. Turn the heat up and let it brown and start to stick to the bottom of the pan, but do not burn it.
  4. Gradually add a cup of water, stirring it in to make a smooth mixture.
  5. Stir in milk.
  6. Add cayenne pepper, pepper, and salt to taste.
  7. Add other vegetables as desired. For example, spinach or some other chopped up green such as kale can be nice. A can of diced tomatoes will work. Garbanzo beans worked great. If you use them, I'd keep it simple and leave out the other vegetables. A cup of rice or noodles will make for an even more filling dish.
