Zesty Ginger And Peanut Soup

"One person who ate this soup said it was the best soup they’d eaten in their entire life! You can always eat a warm and centering bowl of soup, even in the summer if it’s a light soup. This is a rich, creamy, and delicious soup with the influence of West African cuisine. This peanut soup recipe is a perfect light and easy summer food for a brunch or dinner. This dish is loosely based on groundnut stew, a dish common throughout West Africa. The main ingredients in groundnut stew are chicken, peanut butter, and ginger. However, this recipe uses pureed peanuts and chicken stock instead of peanut butter and chicken meat. This recipe is a light and herbaceous soup topped with appetizing looking garnishes."
