African Peanut Soup

Recommended Posts

Makes 9 large servings

3.57 WWP per serving

 

I included the brands I used and their points (Great Value is Walmart brand).

 

2 medium onions, chopped - 0 WWP

2 large red bell peppers, chopped - 0 WWP

4 cloves garlic, minced - 0 WWP

28 oz Great Value crushed tomatoes, with liquid - 2.6 WWP

8 cups Swanson's Vegetarian Vegetable Broth - 2.4 WWP

1/4 teaspoon pepper - 0 WWP

1/4 teaspoon chili powder - 0 WWP

2/3 cup extra crunchy peanut butter - 21.33 WWP

1/2 cup uncooked Mahatma brand brown rice - 5.766 WWP

 

Cook the brown rice.

 

Any suggestions for lowering these points? I have never tried the fat free or low fat peanut butter.

Cook onions and bell peppers until tender.

Stir in garlic.

Stir in tomatoes, vegetable stock, pepper, and chili powder. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.

Stir in rice, cover, and simmer another five minutes or until rice is tender.

Stir in peanut butter until well blended, and serve.

I'd add chicken for a hearty meal. Yum, good recipe.

This is absolutely one of my all-time favorite soups. I honestly don't see the points dropping much. Maybe PB2, if you can get it. It is really worth the 4 points. I'm actually surprised that it's so low.

Thanks for the replies!

 

 

Some shredded chicken in it is a great idea. It would make it a one dish meal.

 

What is PB2? I usualyl shop at Walmart, but they don't even have reduced fat peanut butter. Would Kroger stores have it?

This recipe looks really good!

 

PB2 can only be ordered online. It is powerdered peanuts: http://www.bellplantation.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=BP&Product_Code=PB2

 

I usually get the Naturally More PB from walmart it has flax seeds in it.

 

But I have also found lots of Reduced Fat PB at my walmart.

 

I have seen Whipped PB at Winn Dixie if you have one of those.

Reduced fat peanut butter has less fat but more sugar than the regular PB, and the point value works out the same. This is for Jif:

 

Reg PB 190=cal fat=====16 gm fiber====2 sugar====3

RF PB 190=cal fat=====12 gm fiber====1 sugar====4

 

Why did they even bother????

The light pb I got (either Jif or Skippy) has fewer calories and less fat. The points for that alone may or may not be the same as for regular pb, but when added to the recipe totals, the difference may drop the points for the recipe a bit.

 

Sounds like a good recipe, hhkk33.

This sounds delicious! Does anyone know the actual measurement of each serving? Just trying to save myself the time of dividing it out by nine! Thanks!!
