My son loved a sweet potato peanut butter soup a friend let him try and wanted me to make it. After waiting too long for her to get him the recipe, I decided to go on line and take a stab at it. I made it tonight and almost didn't try it as it HATE sweet potatoes. However, everyone in the family including my son's friend who was over raved about it so I got brave. Unbelievable good! I had a second helping. Didn't have vegetable broth so used a tablespoon of salt substitute vegetable seasoning and water, added a few jalapeños since my chilies were mild. It was great. My son and husband added sliced banana half way through their bowls and declared it wonderful. I didn't get that brave, but we all added a few extra peanuts for some crunch which was good. We will definitely be making this again.
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'd lower the amount of PB used by a bit, but all in all amazing. My cousin who hates sweet potatoes enjoyed this dish. Rave reviews. And the serving size of 5 was just about right.
I think this recipe is great as is, but playing with spice combinations is nice too. It works well to simply use an immersion blender.
Followed recipe except used chunky peanut butter. I bake sweet potatoes ahead of time, and finish when I find the time. Purée ingredients, simmer, serve. Filling, chock full of vitamins.
Quick and easy. Baked sliced sweet potatoes beforehand, added cinnamon and nutmeg, used crunchy peanut butter. yummy.
