  4. Place the peanuts in a blender or food processor and add the onion and garlic to the pan.
  5. Fry until golden and add them to the peanuts.
  6. Drain and chop the potatoes and place in the blander as well, adding some of the stock.
  7. Process until smooth and our the mixture into a saucepan with the remaining stock.
  8. Add the cream and heat though.
  9. Season to taste.

Serving suggestions

Sprinkle some herbs such chives or coriander leaves over the soup. If preferred, the cream can be swirled into individual bowls rather than mixed in with the soup.

Chef's notes

When buying the peanuts try to find natural ones still in their skins. There is no need to remove the skins. Only use the roasted sort that you get in pubs as a last resort, in which case do not fry them and reduce or leave out the salt.
