Peanut Soup  

Groundnuts, commonly referred to as peanuts, are a legume that is widely accessible throughout the winter. The common nut is rich in protein, fibre, and good fats, which are all components of the body that are also necessary for weight loss. Omega-3 fatty acids are also important for maintaining a healthy heart. The low-carb bean is also surprisingly high in antioxidants, which help revitalise hair and skin and slow down the ageing process. 

How To Make 

Since it is a specialty of Virginia, a state in the United States where peanuts are widely farmed, this recipe is known as "Virginia Peanut Soup."  


2 Tbsp butter 

1 medium onion 

6 cups chicken stock 

2 tbsp all-purpose flour 

1 cup heavy cream 

1 ½ cups natural peanut butter 

2 tsp hot sauce 

2 Limes (juiced) 

2 tbsp peanuts, chopped 

2 scallions, chopped 


Start the dish by heating butter in a large, heavy pan over medium heat. One medium onion should be added and sautéed until golden brown. Add the chicken stock and all-purpose flour now, and stir the mixture until it begins to smell toasted. Add the remaining ingredients, including lime juice, peanut butter, heavy cream, and spicy sauce, and season to taste. When the scallions and chopped peanuts are added, your delicious soup is ready to be served! 

You can replace the butter and heavy cream in the soup with ghee and milk, respectively, to make it healthier. So, give this filling dish a try and make the most of the wintertime.
