CEiMB - Sweet and Spicy Peanut Soup
You know how fantastic this soup is?
I have bronchitis. And a sinus infection. I'm running a fever. I had to go out to buy peanut butter.
And I still made this soup.
Not much wisdom to impart for this week's Craving Ellie in My Belly except this: When pureeing hot soup in the blender, just like the recipe says only fill it 1/3 of the way, and hold down the top with a dish towel before you blend. Unless you need to clean your kitchen cabinets. With the way I'm feeling, that wasn't at the top of my to do list. Now it is.
Pamela at Cookies With Boys mentioned it was very spicy with the 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne the recipe called for, and I thought about going easy on it. But we love it spicy and I figured it would help me breathe easier. It did. Plus it's loaded with sweet potatoes, red bell peppers, carrots and more, good nutrients to help me get better.
Thanks go to Mary at Popsicles and Sandy Feet for picking this one for us. I love Mary and her blog. She has a great sense of humor.
You'll find the recipe here. Make it soon. You won't regret it.
