4 TBSP unsalted butter
2 shallots, chopped
2 ribs of celery, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups water
4 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups creamy natural peanut butter
salt & pepper
1/2 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced


1. Melt the butter in a dutch oven over medium heat. Add the shallot, celery, and 1/4 tsp salt to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.

4. Add the peanut butter a little at a time while stirring until well incorporated. Continue to simmer, stirring often, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve topped with roasted peanuts and green onion.
