Thai Inspired Peanut Soup

Peanut Soup is a robust and distinct flavor soup. The hint is soy sauce combined with a slight bit of heat, creates visions of exotic East countries and spice markets.

Full time: 30 minutes
Serves 2-3

You will need:

1 stalk celery, diced fine

1/4-1/2 cup roasted peanuts for garnish

Let us begin:

In a medium sauce pot melt butter over medium-high heat.

Once melted add in onion, celery, garlic, and red pepper flakes.

Cook 5-8 minutes or until onion and celery become soft.

Sprinkle over flour and whisk vegetables around until well coated, approximately 1 minute.

Add in chicken stock while constantly whisking.

Stir in peanut butter and soy sauce.

Lower heat to medium-low and allow soup to simmer.

Whisk often to prevent scorching.
