I know what you’re thinking. Peanut Soup? I mean, who discovered peanut soup and why? Don’t we live in the age of peanut allergies everywhere? The simple answer to this question is that I don’t care about other people and I will only serve this to myself. This will not be served at dinner parties or at functions for kids. I don’t need a lawsuit on my hands and neither do you.

Peanuts are getting a bad name these days but they have tons of health benefits. Besides being a rich source of minerals like copper, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, Vitamin E and selenium, peanuts help lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol due to its fatty acids. They also have Resveratrol, which has been found to have a protective function against cancers, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and viral/fungal infections.

Aren’t peanuts amazing? Honestly, for those of you that are allergic, sucks to be you.

Then you throw in broccoli, spinach, and garlic into this recipe and you have the makings of health food bonanza. Has anyone ever said that broccoli, spinach, and garlic have adverse effects on your health? NOT A SOUL! And that broccoli has high levels of vitamin K and choline, and it will help keep your memory sharp. One of the best brain foods out there. Honestly, you’re going to love this recipe, and you’re going to complete the New York Times Crossword puzzle right after. Brain pumping goodness!

We’re not going to delve into any of the minor foods that go into this recipe because it would just be the same, “this stuff is amazing” talk over and over again, and honestly, I think you’ll get bored of my ramblings.

So just make this recipe. It will take you five minutes to make at most. Honestly, I swear. And to you Uber Eats lovers out there… Put your phones down and just make this recipe. You’ll be proud that you actually made something instead of watching reruns of Friends on Netflix while texting your Uber driver about why he or she is taking so long.

Enjoy!
