This soup was alright if you like peanut butter soup... it was a little too rich for me but my boyfriend loved it. Instead of cream we used whole milk & we added sauteed onions sugar snap peas & bell peppers and chopped cooked chicken which helped make it more nutritious however it was still really rich. I'd recommend adding about 1/2 the peanut butter called for. Read More

This truly was the best peanut soup I have ever had...I chopped up the celery and a red onion in my food processor. I also added about one fourth of a green pepper for some added flavor. I did not have heavy cream so I mixed up some milk and instant coffee cream and that did the trick. So easy and quick and flavorful. Virginia is known for its peanuts and peanut soup is a big thing.....and this is better than the traditional peanut soup in southeastern Virginia's restaurants. Garnish it with some chopped peanuts. De-lish. Served with peanut chicken sald croissants. (Im adding that recipe to the site soon). Thank you:) Read More

I like this recipe a lot though I did alter it a bit. I used all the same measurement for the basic soup but I substituted coconut milk for heavy cream added shredded cooked chicken bits used green onions 2 tbsp. red curry paste 1 tbsp. tarragon and 1.5 tbsp. brown sugar. Ok so this is really a different recipe and I would have just customized it but I'm not a supporting member. Read More

Our vegetarian friends made a version of this at a dinner party. They simply replaced the chicken broth with veggie. I believe they also used creamy peanut butter (personal preference) and added a little heat. I agree that it does need a kick. When I tried to recreate it I used red pepper flakes in the beginning as one reviewer suggested and it gave it a nice warmth. My only issue with it was caused by me - I only had natural peanut butter at the house and it was not nearly as nice of a consistency as our friends. Next time I ll get regular sugared peanut butter. I am rating the version we had at the party b/c I know it was good! Read More

Tried it just as it is written (for 9 serv) and it was great until I added the whipping cream. It lost too much of the peanut flavor. I added a brick of cream cheese more peanut butter a dash of Frank's Hot Sauce and garnished with spring onions-perfect! Read More

Great soup recipe! I agree a little kick is definitely needed so I added a few red pepper flakes towards the end. Next time I will add them in the beginning with the celery and onions. Served the soup with crusty french bread rolls and it was a perfect match. Can't wait to serve it again...thank you for the recipe! Read More

This is soooo like my "doctored up" ramen chicken noodle soup. I like one person's idea of adding coconut milk. And instead of red pepper flakes I like to use Cholula hot sauce: just the right level of hotness for my constitution! Other than the above I add: leftover chicken or pork or shrimp; leftover or freshly chopped vegetable; lime juice and fish sauce if I want some pad thai flavor; and anything else that might be lying around.:-) As you might guess I'm a "fly by the seat of my pants" type of cook!
