I’ve mentioned before here on the blog that I love peanut butter and that I like to put it in as much food as possible. However, my husband doesn’t believe that peanut butter belongs with dinner (because he’s crazy).

So when I made him try the Thai Coconut Peanut Soup, I was nervous and he was hesitant.

The verdict? A winner! He said it didn’t make him think of peanut butter and it blended together nicely. Winning! (Are we still saying that? No? Just me?)

Canadian Chicken

Made by a chicken farmer

Canadian Chicken facts:

  • Canadian chicken is grain-fed, free of hormones and steroids.
  • Canadian chicken is raised here in Canada according to nationally-set, mandatory food safety, and animal care standards.

Did you know that 80% of Canadians want to see a mark that shows that the chicken they’re buying is Canadian? The solution is the logo above. Whenever you buy chicken with the Raised by a Canadian farmer logo, you’re buying chicken raised by a registered Canadian chicken farmer, who is subject to our mandatory and auditable programming for things like food safety and animal care.

If you don’t see the logo at your local grocery store, ask for it! I don’t have it at the store I frequent, so I put in a suggestion.

This list of ingredients in the Thai Coconut Peanut Soup is longer than the typical recipe here on The Bewitchin’ Kitchen but don’t let that stop you. The length may seem a little overwhelming, but it’s not. It takes only a few minutes to throw it all together, I promise.

  1. This soup looks absolutely amazing! I love all the ingredients, especially the addition of the peanut butter. I get tired of chicken so I may replace with shrimp. I’ve been meaning to buy some liquid aminos, but have been using soy sauce in the meantime (since I seem to forget every time I’m at the store). I also like to use fish sauce as a replacement as well. I can’t wait to give this a try!

    • I can’t handle fish sauce, so I didn’t but I bet it would make a delicious addition (for those who like it 😉 ). Shrimp would be yummy too!

  2. How much peanut butter? What kind of chili paste (red, green or)? Looks good. Thanks!

    • Thanks for pointing out I forgot how much PB! 1/3 cup…and chili paste was red. Don’t mistake it for curry paste, it’s the chili paste. I believe it’s the same as the sambal oek.

  3. Looks yummy and colorful! Thank you for sharing with us at #HomeMattersParty  .We would love to have you again next week. 

  4. I made this last night and it was awesome.
