You've got to take the rough with the smooth, and sometimes life just needs a little bit of peanut butter. Warning: don’t read this while hungry

The soup

When you're starting with a base of peanut butter, tomato puree and greens, how could this winter warmer possibly go wrong? We admit, peanut butter in a soup sounds odd, but served with some cooked brown rice it's like a big warming hug. Promise.
