“My little Peanut” Soup

My little Bubble is in love with this recipe, mostly because it’s something Mom eats! So of course he wants it every time I do. So I decided to modify the recipe for him so that he could enjoy it, just like Mommy! To be honest, I felt guilty too….that I was getting to eat that nutty delicious delight and he couldn’t even imagine how incredible it tasted! It does contain actual peanuts but obviously grounded down heavily to a peanut butter, alternatively you can use smooth peanut butter.
