    Try it with coconut milk instead of cream and add some red curry paste for spice. MMMMMMmmmmmmmm!  -  24 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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  -  25 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  12 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
