ISO Senegalese Peanut Soup recipe
Not sure if this is it, but this is a recipe that I got from a restaurant that went out of business some years ago. It was one of their "signature soups" and, when they went belly up, I begged for and obtained the recipe:
TATNUCK'S SENEGALESE PEANUT SOUP
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp. cayenne pepper or more to taste
2 Tbsp. peanut or vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. curry powder
3 cups chicken broth
10 medium-size tomatoes, cut in half crosswise, seeds squeezed out, coarsely chopped
5 cups drained and seeded canned tomatoes, chopped
2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
salt and pepper
In a 4-quart pot over medium heat, cook the onion, garlic and cayenne pepper in the oil until the onion turns translucent--about 10 minutes. Stir in the curry powder and stir the mixture over medium heat for one minute more.
Add the chicken broth and tomatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes more and strain the soup through the fine disk of a food mill or push it through a medium-mesh strainer with a ladle.
Bring the soup to a simmer and whisk in the peanut butter. Season with salt and pepper and more cayenne if you want it hotter.
Serve sour cream and lime wedges at the table.
