If you're a person who loves peanuts, but thinks they were made to eat at baseball games or on bread with jelly, think again and get ready for a culinary adventure.
This peanut soup is rich and spicy. The chopped scallions or chives are an integral element, not just a garnish.Serves 6 to 8
2 cups chopped onions
1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon cayenne or other ground dried chiles (or to taste)
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger root
