Peanut Soup – March 31, 2009

TMTT Blissfully Domestic 1

I finally made the peanut soup and it was delicious!!  Here is the link to the recipe.  Some things you should know about it: The lime juice doesn’t come out as “lime” flavoring, but yet it makes a huge difference in the overall taste of the dish (Ga’hoole Girl says that it adds “layers” of flavor).  It says to add two teaspoons of hot sauce, but I used Tabasco sauce, so I just added a little at a time until I got the right flavor.    I also used half and half instead of cream and it was still plenty rich!

I’m really glad that I got brave enough to try something different because it was worth it.  I loved it, Mr. Math Tutor liked it, Ga’hoole Girl didn’t really like it, and Wild Man thought it was too weird to try.  Thankfully, I also made some potato-cheese soup that night, so no one went hungry.  The peanut soup also took very little time to make – less than an hour.  So, give it a try – it’s surprisingly delicious!!
