About this Cook
Well, I've been a lacto-vegetarian for a couple of years now; both for health and personal reasons, but it all started when I was a child really. -- I love 'The Office', turtles and aquariums, to sing in my car.. I live for [rock] music, .. I'm a daydreamer, really.

West African Peanut Soup
Quick, simple, and just wonderful! As I usually use about 3/4 of a jar of 18 oz peanut butter, I altered the recipe a bit with another 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, 2 cans of 8 oz (?) diced tomatoes with green chilies, 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (spicy, I love), 3 bell peppers, and 3/4 c rice. Everything else stays the same, though another cup or two of vegetable broth would help with the thickness. Also, I've found that I cannot chop onion for anything (very strong!), so I use my food processor to dice as needed. making it at least once every few months lasts awhile! Great recipe!
