I got this recipe from our very own @Palimpsest who shared her mother's recipe for West African Groundnut Stew with us on a DPIAT thread. Apparently the Phillips family has special sacred peanut soup every year for Thanksgiving. I found Beall's recipe thinking it sounded interesting and was disappointed to see it was basically a cream of peanut butter soup, meh. If I were at a restaurant and they were known for it I would give it a try, maybe if it had tons of garlic it would be okay. The recipe was one of those a little of this, and some of that type recipes which I like.
I decided to skip the meat and I added tons of veggies. It was delicious, and I will be enjoying it for lunch this week. We are expecting seven inches of snow tonight so a spicy hearty soup will hit the spot.
