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.

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:)

This soup is so delicious and flavorful. I added cayenne for flavor, chopped cooked chicken, and used coconut milk instead of heavy whipping cream. Wonderful for a cold night!

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.

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!

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!
