I love soup especially in the fall. And I love peanut butter ALL year. So, combining them? Good idea or bad idea?
I used natural peanut butter in this soup. I would do that if you are going to make this. Check the label. The ingredients should be peanuts and salt.
This recipe is a bit time cosuming. Peanut butter burns pretty easily, so this heats over a double boiler for 20 minutes. It does get thick, but it takes 20 minutes. 20 minutes. ahem.
- 1 T. butter
- 3 T. peanut butter
- 1 t. minced onion
- 2 T. flour
- 3 c. heated milk (or part chicken broth)
- Cook onion in butter and peanut butter for 5 minutes (watch so the pb doesn’t burn).
- Add flour and stir until smooth.
- Add heated milk slowly and cook 20 minutes in a double boiler until thickened. Season to taste. If desired sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
Wretched Rating: 2 This recipe is gross because you know what it is. If you served this I don’t think anyone would guess. It is the texture of pureed and thinned out refried beans. The flavor is very mild. Could be a way to get kids to eat soup? Yeah, I didn’t think so either.
