Indonesian peanut soup with leek

A simple soup with peanutbutter in it. I’m actually not sure whether this is Indonesian or African.


  • sunflower oil
  • 2 onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 300 gr leek
  • 5 potatoes
  • 34 liter vegetable stock
  • 7 tbsp peanutbutter
  • sweet soy sauce
  • sambal
  • leaf celery


  • emping


Chop the onions and garlic. Roughly wash the potatoes and dice them into 2cm cubes. Cut and wash the leek, don’t cut it too small.

In the oil saute the garlic and onions. Add salt and pepper. After a couple of minutes add the leek. Bake that too. Then add potatoes and the veggie stock. Boil until potatoes are done. Add the peanutbutter, the sweet soy sauce and the sambal.

Serve with chopped leaf celery and emping.
