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.

How to Make Tomato Peanut Butter Soup


  1. 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.
  2. If you prefer a creamier tomato soup you may add 1-2 cups milk to extend soup and make it creamier.
