African Peanut Soup

Not sure where my sister got this recipe but she made it once and I thought it was good, so I asked her for it! If I recall, I think she used chickpeas and sausage instead of chicken.

African Peanut Soup with Roasted Chicken and Jasmine Rice


-1 tbsp olive oil
-1 medium sweet onion, roughly chopped
-1 medium yellow bell pepper, roughly chopped
-3 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
-2" piece ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
-1 tsp ground or crushed coriander seed
-1 tsp cumin
-1 tsp tumeric
-1 tsp chili powder
-1 quart low sodium chicken broth
-2 cups peeled and roughly chopped carrots
-16 ounce can peeled plum tomatoes
-1 large sweet potato, peeled and roughly chopped
-¼ cup roughly chopped cilantro, packed
-1 tbsp brown sugar
-1 tsp Sriracha chili sauce
-1½ tsp salt, more to taste
-½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
-¾ cup peanut butter
-1 can light coconut milk
-2 cups shredded roasted chicken breast
-cooked jasmine rice, for topping (I use 1/2 cup per serving)
-finely chopped bell pepper (any colour) for topping
-finely chopped fresh cilantro, for topping
-roughly chopped salted peanuts, for topping

1. Heat oil over medium heat in a large stockpot or dutch oven. Add onions and pepper and sauté until soft and translucent. Add garlic, ginger and spices and continue to sauté for 2 more minutes.

2. Add the chicken stock, carrots, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, cilantro, brown sugar, Sriracha, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 45 minutes until all veggies are super tender.

3. Add coconut milk and peanut butter and puree with a stick blender or a regular blender. If using a regular blender, be sure to allow mixture to cool a bit before pureeing.

4. Add roasted chicken and cook for another minute or two until chicken is heated through. Ladle into bowls and garnish with a scoop of rice and a sprinkle of the chopped peppers, cilantro and peanuts.
