Easy Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Soup Recipe
Nothing beats a warming soup. And with so many pumpkin based recipes that i have been making, it was inevitable that Pumpkin soup had to be one of them. I know I had made a Roasted Pumpkin soup long back, but then there are always variations galore. I had this one recipe from a neighbor which has such a creamy texture, that I had to make it. What more, it had this one ingredient which I am absolutely crazy about. Peanut Butter.

    Maybe my sweet potato was larger, but I took nearly 3 cups of water to get this to a decent creamy soup consistency. It still came out delicious. Lots of pepper.

  4. This is tasty, yummy and most of all this might be a good natural diet to expecting moms. :)

    Tried this but found it a bit too bland for my liking – ended up adding red pepper flakes, curry powder, cilantro, green onions, corn, and some brown sugar. So I guess it didn’t end up being the same soup at all, but it made a great base and was wonderful inspiration! :-D
