Carrot and Peanut Butter Soup

Adding peanut butter to soup may sound a bit strange to some, but after trying this recipe, or other non traditional recipes for the sweet spread, you will be happy that you did!

  • 4-5 large carrots, skinned and chopped
  • 1 large potato, chopped
  • 3 table spoons peanut butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 table spoons fresh basil
  • 2 table spoons fresh cilantro
  • 1 tea spoon cumin seeds
  • 2 table spoons salt (or more, to taste)
  • 1 table spoon black pepper
  • 2 table spoon fresh ginger, chopped
  • 5 cups water
  • Dash of sesame oil.

Put all ingredients in a soup pot, and boil for 20 minutes, until the vegetables have become tender. Remove from heat and set aside for at least 2 hours to cool.

Once the soup has cooled, transfer to a blender, and blend until the soup as reached a uniform consistency.

Return the soup to the soup pot, and heat gently before serving.

    Are there any good substitutes for sesame oil in this recipe? I have an intolerance to it.

      the sesame oil is just for extra flavour, its not that important. I just happen to love it and put it in everything.

    Oh, and it's a creamed one, too! You're right, I've never thought about peanut butter in soup before, and with the carrots, I'm sure the flavours marry well. Thanks for the idea! Voted!
