If you like peanut butter and a bit of spice, this is a great way to get both.  High in vitamin C and the nuts give a protein boost. Unlike the all day soup, this is done in 45 minutes with prep.  Perfect for fall.  This is a soup I just love!

  • 1 tsp veg oil
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp grated pealed ginger root (optional)
  • 1 c chopped carrots
  • 4 c vegetable stock or water
  • 2 c chopped sweet potatoes
  • 2 c tomato juice
  • 1 c smooth peanut butter
  • 1 c scallions or chives

 

Directions:

  1. Heat oil and saute onions till soft. Stir in cayenne and ginger. Add carrots and saute 3 minutes. Mix in potatoes and stock.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes until veggies are tender.
  3. Puree in blender or in the pan with immersion blender. Return to pan and add peanut butter.
  4. Once blended test for salt and sweetness.  You can add sugar/agave/honey if you like.
