I followed this recipe almost exactly. I never really measure, so I just eyeballed all of the ingredients. I used V-8 rather than tomato juice/soup. I also added 2 or 3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for a little extra heat. I hate cilantro, so I used scallions as a garnish. Although the soup looks and seems like it would be unappetizing, I thought it was truly unique and tasted fantastic. I've eaten it for 3 days in a row! It is filling and satisfying. I used Smart Balance peanut butter, and I did not find the PB taste to be overwhelming at all. Like others mentioned, I think this would be good as a sauce or served over rice. I will definitely make this again. Delicious!
Sweet Potato-Peanut Bisque
From EatingWell: September/October 2009
This satisfying vegetarian, sweet potato soup is inspired by the flavors of West African peanut soup. We like the added zip of hot green chiles, but they can sometimes be very spicy. It’s best to take a small bite first and add them to taste. Try chopped peanuts and scallions for a different garnish. Serve with a mixed green salad with vinaigrette.

I love sweet potatoes, but I thought this soup was just okay. It tasted like tomato soup mixed with sweet potato and peanut butter. I used natural peanut butter, half the amount called for in the recipe, and it definitely had a very strong peanut butter taste.
Yummy yummy. I left out the chilis because I didn't have any in my pantry. I also used 1.5 cups tomato juice and 1.5 cups water, and I used chicken broth rather than veggie broth. I also used regular peanut butter. Came out delicious and rich.
We loved the soup. I didn't have tomato juice, so I used water and tomato paste. I may use more peanut butter next time. Delicious!
My favorite new soup. Whenever I'm serving sweet potatoes as a side dish, I roast extra and then use them for this soup. I use a SmartStick hand blender so I can smooth out the soup right in the pot to whatever consistency I'm in the mood for. I don't have to wait for it to cool or mess up a food processor or blender.
