Curry And Peanut Butter Soup.

This has been my favourite soup ever since I’ve tried it, but I couldn’t make a decent picture of it to post here. It is still not perfect, but hey – I can’t keep this recipe to myself any longer. The combination is very unlikely, but it is very addictive and yummy. I guess any fan of satay sauce would love it! Those who are allergic to peanuts or don’t like the taste of peanut butter, can substitute it with almond butter. I’ve tried both and it comes out fantastic, no matter what you use. This soup is very low in fat – in fact I do not use any oil here at all, so the fat you get is only from nut butter, which is not saturated. It is also high in protein and fiber – great for losing weight and building muscle. Spices used here also boost the metabolism. You can skip the curry powder if you like and substitute it with 1 chili pepper, chopped.

Oh, and it’s a vegan soup! All the goodness and no harm done 🙂
