Rich Autumn Soup



For those of you commonly scared away by unusual ingredients (such as peanut butter in soup) give this a try- the flavors meld together beautifully offering a very warm "comforting" meal! And remember, as a soup- it is very forgiving recipe and quite open to ingredient substitutions- exclude and substitute as your cupboards allow.


Ingredients:
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers (mixed, red & green)
  • 1 can tomato soup + 4 cans water
  • 1-2 cups mashed yam (baked and mashed is especially flavourful)
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • 1 large diced potato
  • 2 tbs shredded fresh ginger
  • 4 cloves roast garlic (or 2 cloves fresh)
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • Dash of worstishire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
Directions:
  1. Fry onions in oil for five minutes on med-high, add the peppers and fry until soft.
  2. Add the tomato soup and water.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes (until potatoes are soft).

Hint:
If you have time to give this soup a little extra time to meditate an hour or so after you've cooked it the flavors start singing in proper harmony- however, even fresh off the clothing rack this is still one comfy sweater!
