Here is the the recipe but I don't usually follow it exactly. (My changes are noted).


Senegalese Peanut Soup

2/3 cup chopped peanuts & 2 tbsp peanut butter (I use two big "glops" of chunky peanut butter)
2 tbsp oil (I use olive or canola oil, I just pour some in)
2 cups chopped onions (I just chop two small to med onions)
6 cups sweet potato (If I only had 1 sweet potato, I added a few russet potatoes)
2 cans cooked garbanzo beans (I used 3 cups garbanzo beans and snuck in 1 cup of pinto beans also, I've also put in some kidney beans)
2 cans veggie or chicken broth (I added water as needed and chicken bullion stock)
2 med chopped tomatoes (I used 1 qt of diced tomatoes from my freezer)
1 tbsp cumin (I used more than this)
1 tsp paprika (optional)
salt & pepper to taste

I toss all ingredients into pot and cook til done. When potatoes are soft I stab around in there with a potato masher to thicken the soup.

I added shredded chicken to one batch, it was great! You can make other substitutions and additions.

This is amazingly good soup! It freezes well too.

Oh I made this before and did the same thing you did with just using peanut butter. It is beyond good. Now I need to make it this weekend again.

Is there a way of substituting another nut for the peanuts without destroying the recipe?

Here's my hint on trying to substitute for peanuts... they are not really nuts, so look to their relatives in the legume family for a possible substitute. If I wanted to experiment I'd try garbanzos due to the similarity in textures.

Try adding additional cumin and some cayenne pepper to this soup if using garbanzos.
