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.
Yum!! Nice light peanut flavor. I prefer a more intense flavor, but might have ruined it so stuck to the main peanut flavor. A couple of tweaks. I use a butter flavored olive oil for healthier cooking. Also during the initial simmer I added a tsp garlic and a tsp of pepper flakes. I also used a little more thickener and milk instead of cream since I didn't have any on hand. Lastly, I added the juice of 1/2 lemon at the end to brighten it up.
i expected this soup to have an overpowering peanut butter taste, but not at all! just rich, creamy, and satisfying - perfect for a cold night! i saw another peanut soup recipe on this site where a reviewer suggested the addition of cumin - i tried this and thought it really enhanced the flavors nicely, so give it a try!
update: i just made this soup again, and this time added some lemon juice (a lot of traditional peanut soup recipes use lemon). it really helped to cut the strong flavor and fat of the peanut butter; i'll definitely use this addition from now on!
Couldn't believe how fast I prepared this soup! Served it instead of salad and was a big hit with the family. I used an immersion blender to puree it and it came out just right. Thanks!
I was a little disappointed in this - it seemed to thin so I added more peanut butter, and that made it too sweet. I'll definitely eat it, but maybe because I halved the recipe I compromised some of the flavor?
I love peanut soup and I've had it at King's Arms Tavern. This recipe is good but it makes a ton. I suggest putting in only 1 quart of chicken broth and adding more, a little at a time, if you need to. I added more peanut butter to give it the consistency I like it. I put it through the blender a second time and then cooked it down. this made it really smooth and thickened it up. Great with breadsticks or croutons and a glass of red wine on a cold winter's night. Filling!
Wow, this is fantastic soup. Very unique indeed. Very satisfying. I used regular skim milk for the cream, olive oil for the butter and veggie stock for the chicken stock.A real treat for a meal! A lifelong keeper!!
Sounds icky ... Tastes wonderful! My wife is vegetarian, so I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. The broth melds perfectly with the peanut buttter so one doesn't overpower the other. I made it for her since she had it this summer at the King's Arms. Check out the Sally Lunn Bread recipe also!
This was my 1st experience with cream of peanut soup. It was good. I probably won't make it again but it was fun to try and at least now I can say that I've had cream of peanut soup.
I was going to post this, but will just review instead. :o) About every 10 years or so, I make it back to Williamsburg and always go to the King's Arms for their peanut soup. (I love that place so much I actually have a little framed photo of it as part of my kitchen decor!) I was a bit hesitant about trying to make my own at home, but this recipe is very simple and tastes just like the wonderful, rich flavor at the tavern. Would be great for a Colonial party or Thanksgiving soup. Definitely worth a try!
