Tomato Peanut Butter Soup

Kathie Carr


I have ben working on a pamphlet of low cost recipes for our church pantry to give away. When I found this depression era recipe I was curious and so I tried it out.

Its very interesting. It does not taste of peanut butter but it has a rich flavor. Kids like it and its inexpensive. It is also higher in protein than simple tomato soup.

15 Min


1 qt
canned tomatoes
3/4 c
smooth peanut butter
1/2 tsp
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp
butter or margarine
pinch of dried red pepper flakes, optional
1-2 c
milk, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine tomatoes, peanut butter, paprika, salt, and pepper in a saucepan. Bring almost to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add butter and pepper flakes if used. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes to blend flavors. Serve with a spoon of sour cream, if desired.
If you prefer a creamier tomato soup you may add 1-2 cups milk to extend soup and make it creamier.
