I made this soup before we left for Christmas. I was looking for something lighter, but full of flavor. Any peanut butter flavored soup tastes great to me, but the addition of the roasted tomatoes and the healthy kale put this at the top of my list. I used the recipe found on Cooking from A to Z in a post which features 3 types of soup.
- 1 medium sized onion – diced
- 2 cloves garlic – minced
- 1 T minced fresh ginger
- 5 C. water
- 5 T unsweetened chunky peanut butter
- 2 small to medium potatoes
- 1 can slow roasted (fire roasted) tomatoes
- 2- 3 cups shredded kale
- 2 t dried thyme
- 2 t ground cumin
- 1 t freshly ground black pepper
- salt to taste
In a bit of oil, saute the ginger, garlic and onion for several minutes. Add diced potatoes and cook for about 10 minutes. Throw in the peanut butter, kale, tomatoes and seasonings (and 5 cups water) and heat to a boil before simmering for 15 minutes. Once potatoes are cooked through, blend or process the soup. I only did about half and left the other half chunky, mixing them together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Notes: Again, this makes for a great healthy soup!
Servings: 4 – 6 bowls
