Thai Inspired Peanut & Coconut Soup

Thai Peanut & Coconut Soup

I love the exotic flavors of Thai food- the hint of sweet with savory and the richness of the spices. I’m always trying to come up with new recipes to satisfy my tastebuds. Kraft Smooth Peanut Butter is an ingredient that I use in a lot of my Thai inspired dinners. It’s so much more than a spread and really enhances the taste of a lot of my recipes. One of favourites is this Thai Peanut & Coconut soup. Not only is this soup easy to make, but is ready in less than 30 minutes start to finish.  

Thai Peanut & Coconut Soup



½ cup Kraft Peanut Butter, Smooth
1 can unsweetened coconut milk
2 tsp. Lime juice
½ tsp. finely grated lime zest
1 cup chicken broth
2 garlic cloves crushed
1 T. soy sauce
½ onion, finely diced
1 tsp. Ginger paste
1 tsp. paprika
½ tsp. Red pepper flakes
1 T. butter
1 T. all-purpose flour


1. Place butter and diced onions in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, saute until the onions just begin to turn translucent.

2. Stir in garlic, ginger, paprika, and red pepper flakes, cooking for 1 minute, careful not to burn the garlic.
