Vegetarian African Peanut Soup Recipe

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


With a bit of peanut butter, vegetables and hot sauce, this is a thick stew-like African peanut soup recipe that is both vegetarian and vegan. It's made with carrots, onions, soy milk, peanut butter and a bit of hot sauce. African peanut soup can be served over rice as a main dish. Peanut soup is a popular dish to serve at Kwanzaa.


  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 14 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
  • flour and water as needed to thicken
  • dash hot sauce


In a large pot, bring the vegetable broth to a simmer.

Add the tomatoes, carrots and green onions. Reduce heat to medium low and cover. Allow to cook for at least 20 minutes, or until carrots are soft.

Stir in the soy milk and peanut butter, whisking to incorporate.

Add a mixture of flour and water if needed to thicken up the soup a bit.

Garnish with additional green onions, if desired, and serve hot.

My new comfort food, Guest Jeri D.

This recipe is so easy to make. It's just a few ingredients and it takes about 30-40 minutes to make. My husband and I consider this our new comfort food. It's also good spooned over some brown rice. Yum.
