Back by popular demand this week is another Instant Pot recipe! I feel like as soon as school starts it is time for squash, baked goods and soup, and I know I am not the only one! This soup was inspired by a dish that my husband and mother in law make and uses peanut powder, which is not something I had heard of before. We usually make peanut powder at home by blending roasted peanuts on low in the blender, sifting, then repeating the process until you have enough. If you do this too fast it becomes peanut butter so it is important to blend on low in small amounts and sift often. My husband usually takes about ten minutes to get a 32 oz container full of peanut powder. If you aren’t patient enough for that, you can find peanut powder on amazon by clicking here. This recipe has a nice interesting texture from the peanut powder which we all loved! I will advise that you stir well once it is finished cooking, then each time before serving for best results. I enjoy it with toast or crackers to dip and a side salad! You can use a chicken or beef broth for this or veggie broth to make it vegan! This is a naturally gluten and dairy free recipe and technically a nut free recipe as peanuts are a legume by definition. I have tried adding 1 cup of raw cut chicken to this and it was AMAZING so there is that option as well, cook times remain the same and if necessary, to avoid overfilling, reduce broth to 7 cups.
If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, what are you waiting for!? I can honestly say I have never used any appliance more than we use the Instant Pot-btw I am not sponsored by them-just a raving fan! Pressure cooking is good for so many things and I believe the flavor is much better with it! We have a few recipes up now for the Instant Pot and are planning on posting more and more!
