4 out of 5 loved it

Great reviews from the 9 and 13 year old children, husband, and me; only my daughter didn't like it.

I added about 1/8 of a cup more peanut butter. Started with just a few drops of hot sauce, which was just right for me, and let the boys add more to their individual bowls.

I used a sweet potato instead of regular potato, and more red pepper cubes than called for. Seems a very versatile soup and might take any veggie well: corn, maybe something green like edammame or baby lima beans.

quick, adjust taste for each person, healthy

Good soup - needs a few tweaks

We had this for dinner last night - it was perfect for a windy, cold & snowy evening, but did need some help to get there. We added salt, which it really REALLY needed (maybe 1/2-3/4 tsp), about a tablespoon of Thai Chili Garlic Sauce (next time we're omitting the Tabasco and goosing the chili garlic sauce a bit), and a splash of apple cider vinegar (always helps perk up a 'blah' dish). Turned out great.

fast & easy

Lovely Complex Flavour

We loved this soup. I followed the recipe pretty much as is, but for the hot sauce I used a very hot sauce by Dante's Inferno, their "White Hot" sauce described as "excruciating". I didn't change the amount because we like very hot food. The soup was nicely spicy and the flavour of the peanut still came through. We will make this again.

Easy to Make

Based on previous reviewer's comments, I left out the 2 cups of water & just used the 4 cups of chicken broth. The soup thickened on standing so I will probably have to add more chicken broth tomorrow when I reheat the leftovers; it was very flavorful. I used regular peanut butter instead of natural. I went easy on the hot sauce and let my hubby add more to taste. I added cut-up cooked chicken thighs, served it with a salad and bread and we had a great dinner. I would definitely make this again.

This is a poorly designed soup that comes out tasting
like stone soup. It is watery, tasteless and horribly bland. I think there must be a error with the amount of broth and water that it says to add. It is just the pits!
