Move over peanut butter sandwiches….the creamy, dreamy peanut soup is in town!


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I use the smooth kind)
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts, plus extra for garnish


  1. Put the butter in a heavy deep saucepan and melt it over medium high heat. Add the celery and stir for 3 minutes until it starts to soften.
  2. Stir in flour until well combined, then add the chicken broth. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.
  3. Transfer mixture to a blender (or use your immersion blender) and blend until smooth. Add peanut butter and half and half and blend until combined. Return the soup to the pot.
  4. Heat over medium low heat until warmed through. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped peanuts.
  5. Ladle into warmed bowls, garnish with more chopped peanuts and serve.
