    Default Senegalese Peanut Soup

    Senegalese Peanut Soup


    Recipe Description
    This is an old Weight Watchers recipe, but you'd never know it. 4 points under the old system. It provides a lot of protein per serving. I use low sodium or fresh products to reduce sodium, but the canned stuff makes this superfast.
    Preparation Steps:Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    30 minutes
    Ingredients:
    1 15 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    3 cups chicken broth
    3 tablespoons peanut butter
    1 teaspoon peanut oil (or canola)
    2 onions, chopped
    1 inch fresh ginger, minced
    1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    chopped cilantro
    Serves:
    4
    Directions:
    1. Puree chickpeas, 1/2 cup of broth, and peanut butter.
    2. Heat peanut oil in saucepan, saute onions and ginger root 7- 8 minutes.
    3. Stir in curry powder and cumin, saute another minute.
    4. Add remaining broth, tomatoes, and chickpea puree.
    5. Simmer 5 minutes.
    6. Season with cayenne and sprinkle with cilantro.

    That sounds fabulous! I just finished off my last batch of soup and this will replace it for this weeks lunch offerings.

    A friend gave me a recipe for this soup. Hers is slightly different: she puts sweet potatoes in it. It's delicious. Regular potato would probably work well too.

    Sweet potato instead of the chickpeas or as an additional ingredient? It would go together well with it, give more body to the soup. I love sweet potato soups, too.

    The ingredients mirror closely those of hummus (especially if, like me, you use PB instead of tahini to save money!), and who doesn't love hummus? Sounds great and inexpensive too - and I think I actually have everything on hand

    Sweet potatoes and chickpeas.

    I have to get a few ingredients so I can make this soup this weekend.

    I just made this soup. mmmmmm

    I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I used powdered chicken flavored bullion (mixed up 1 qt), used 1 qt of diced tomatoes (frozen from garden last year), the can of chick peas (I got dried ones but haven't cooked them yet), a combo of sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. It came out great.

    This looks like a recipe that will do well with substitutions and changes, Tightwad Gazette style.

    I'm lazy so I just chopped everything up and tossed it in the pot. After the potatoes were soft I stabbed at them several times with a hand held potato masher to make the soup thicker.
