    These are my favorite kind of posts you write. I love the way to talk about food, and how you describe the reasons for concocting things. When I first started following your blog, reading your posts (back when you posted what you ate for dinner every day) inspired me to cook with what I have on hand and use my own creativity. Since then I’ve grown leaps and bounds in my confidence as a home cook and don’t feel confined to recipes to produce a good meal. It’s also completely changed the way I meal plan, and I leave room for “clean out the fridge/pantry/freezer” days. Thank you for reminding and inspiring us all to be better consumers and cooks in our own kitchens.

    This sounds delish …and this is definetly the time for yummy soups. I make a big pot every Monday and always looking to try a new one. I will use Wow Butter (if you haven’t tried it…its even better than Peanut Butter) as we have some nut allergies in the family. I would probably sprinkle with pumpkin seeds instead of peanuts.

    I immediately fall in love with any soup that has peanut butter. Now, if it would only get colder outside so I can spoon (both meanings) a bowl of this on a chilly night… ;)

    OMG. This looks amazing. I’m in love with soup, all throughout the winter.

    Oo, I’ve been eyeballing African peanut stew lately – maybe this will go over better.

    Julie, I think this sounds amazing. Perfect for the very cold weather right now.

    Oh! Julie! Julie!
    I made this for dinner, in my slow cooker. Used my immersion blender to pureed it just a bit. It was so, so good.
    Can’t wait for tomorrow. It will be lunch.

    I’ve got this in the crock pot as we speak! Day 3 of the cleanse and this fits right in (well they say no peanut butter) but otherwise, works great!

    I spent 3 whole minutes this afternoon daydreaming about chicken wings. I kid you not. 12 more days to go….

    Tis one is a keeper. I did not really change much (which is unheard of for me). Kale at store was ick looking so I bought baby spinach dumped the whole thing in the pot for the last ten minutes, turned it off and left the lid on.

    Kids enjoyed it to! I was thinking I might try it without the jalapeños next time and use Harissa instead, maybe tahini instead of the peanut butter to make it school friendly too.

    Yum! Must try , as I’ve recently gotten into Kale and wanting to eat healthier in general. Pinned it!
    Thanks for posting!!

    I’ve got this in my slow cooker right now! I’m scared b/c I generally stay away from ‘different’ food combinations (picky girl here) but thought I’d give it a go! (fingers crossed) :)

    We tried this soup tonight and it was amazing! Very flavourful and hearty, and the dollop of yogurt is nice touch. My 11 month old loved the soup too!!! Healthy meals that we can all enjoy are my favourite. Thank you!

    This looks amazing,I can’t wait to try. I love peanuts in soups, but don’t often find a recipe containing damn near everything I like. Thanks!

    Made this Friday and it’s my fav new vegetarian soup. Followed your suggestion and added one can of lite Trader Joe’s Coconut Milk while reducing water to two cups. Also added 2 tsp of curry powder along with the other spices. Next time I would gauge the hottness of the jalapeno better and only use half of one if they are really potent. Might also reduce the chili powder a smidge when adding the curry. Great and filling when ladled over a bowl of cooked brown rice. Thanks so much.
