Peanut Butter Soup: No Way!

Peanut Butter Soup

Peanut Butter Soup

 

My mother would make the best tasting Peanut Butter Soup. We children always considered it a special treat. It wasn’t until I was older that I realized this was my mother’s way of stretching the food dollars, while providing us with protein. I will give you my version first, then my mothers. You chose the one you like best.

 

June’s Peanut Butter Soup

 

4 TBSP.  Seltzer water

4 TBSP. Almond flour

1 cup Almond milk

½ cup Peanut Butter

 

Gather all premeasured ingredients before beginning to cook. Place the Almond milk in a medium Saucepan; set aside. Whisk together the seltzer water and almond flour until smooth. Add it to the almond milk stirring constantly over medium high heat, until starts to thicken.  DO NOT Boil. If it starts to boil, remove from high stirring to it becomes smooth and slightly thickened. Return to heat, add peanut butter. Stirring constantly until peanut butter is well blended into the mixture and slightly thick. If it is too thick, thin it with the milk. Remove from heat. Measure into ½ cup Ramekins. Serve Warm with a sprinkle of Crushed peanuts if you desire. I like a dash of Cinnamon.
