A while back I posted about using up leftover ingredients that were lurking in the refrigerator and asked if anyone would be willing to share their tried and true "clean out the fridge" recipes. Julia shared a link to a recipe called African Peanut Soup that her family enjoys on days when they need to throw something together quickly. I thought it sounded interesting so we had it for dinner last night.
With the exception of green onion and garlic, all of the ingredients for this soup can be kept on hand in the pantry. It was super easy and quick to prepare and it tasted fantastic. This soup is very delicious hot off the stove, but I will say that it's even better when it has cooled down quite a bit. I know that because I ate two full bowls. It was that good. Hubby loved it too, but did admit that he was skeptical when he first saw the recipe. So if you are't convinced to try it after taking a peek at the recipe, live on the edge a little and give it a whirl. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
