Curried Chickpea Tomato Soup with Peanut Butter

It’s going to be all soup all the time for the rest of this month, so what’s another pot among friends?

Tomorrow is Soupapalooza (you should see the shopping list in front of me), so there will be plenty to share. But I made this one two days ago and sipped the last out of a mug at my desk this afternoon, and it’s almost better than coffee. The chickpeas make it thick, and pureeing them make it sippable. Peanut butter enriches it – peanut butter may be my new favourite soup ingredient – but you can leave it out. It’s soup – you can do anything you want.

Also? It’s even better the next day.

    Better than coffee?! Impossible. But it does look very, very good. I am cooking soup at a rapid clip this month as well, but without your good excuse. (Mine: It’s February. I like soup.) This recipe is going in the lineup.

      OK you’re right – not better than coffee. But pretty good for sipping out of a mug!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Two of my favorite things — chickpeas and peanut butter — together at last in a soup! I’ll be trying that this weekend.

    Julie -it was so much fun meeting you and your mom and the rest of the ladies at the Cookbook Company today for the big Soup Sisters cook party!The soups and your cookies were amazing…hopefully another cooking opportunity comes up again. Can’t wait until the book comes out.

    I wonder how this would be with coconut milk? Without the peanut butter, that’d make a totally different soup, wouldn’t it? I think I’ll try it.

    Hey Julie

    Wondered, would almond butter work? I usually love to make a big batch of stuff to use for lunches at work through the week, and we have a peanut free staff room. I know the consistency can be quite different from peanut butter though. What do you think? I will certainly go with the peanut butter for home! My son’s favourite cocoa now is your recipe for peanut butter hot chocolate!! Anything powdered cannot compare now the kids have had REAL hot chocolate! 🙂
    Will the soup recipe book be available throughout Canada?
    Thanks for the recipe!!

      Yes, the book will be available throughout Canada! And I don’t see why almond butter wouldn’t work – it just adds richness and flavour to the soup, and almonds should work as well in that regard. Glad to hear your son loves the PB hot chocolate!

    Oooh, this sounds so so so good, Julie! It’s almost like my favorite rebar soup recipe that contains peanut butter, yams and pineapple. Well, okay, maybe not the same, but I don’t think you can go wrong with PB in soup. This will be made soon.
