Grains of Paradise Peanut Soup

This West African soup recipe combines sweet potatoes and peanut butter with  Grains of Paradise. The flavors balance beautifully and are a wonderful showcase for this exotic spice. This mythical African spice has a mild peppery taste with floral top notes that hint at ginger and cardamom. The soup is creamy, mild and not at all heavy, making it a wonderful starter or side.

    This made a nice couple of dinners for two. Even better the second night. I started with unroasted ground Indian coriander, and we toasted the grains of paradise as directed before grinding with a mortar and pestle. And we added partially mashed garbanzos for a tasty and fiber-rich addition on the second night.
