Peanut Soup recipe is fabulous and somewhat different; but very intriguing, rich and spicy with West African and Caribbean roots. The onion, celery stalk, green peppers, chicken, thyme and peanut combine wonderfully.
- 4 tablespoons margarine
- 1 onion, grated
- 1 stalk celery, grated
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 sprig fresh thyme
- 2 teaspoons salt
- Â½ teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon chopped green pepper
- 2 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 4 cups stock (beef or chicken)
- 1 Â½ cups peanut butter (crunchy)
- or 2 cups ground peanuts
Prepare ground peanuts if you are not using peanut butter. Then place butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add onion, celery and one teaspoon chopped fresh thyme and sautÃ© for about 5 minutes stirring. Add flour. Then slowly add stock. Increase heat to medium and stirring all the time add peanut butter or ground peanuts and cook for about 10 minutes. Reduce heat and add milk very slowly. Then add seasonings. Allow to simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes. Strain and serve immediately very hot, garnished with chopped green peppers.
