Peanut Butter Soup

1 tablespoon canola oil
2 medium onions, chopped into big pieces
1 large green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped into big pieces
1 large red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped into big pieces
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
1 can (28 oz) whole tomatoes, each tomato cut into quarters, juice reserved
10 cups (2 1/2 quarts) chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1/2 cup creamy unsalted peanut butter

In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium-high, then sautée onions, bell peppers, and garlic until the onion and garlic begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, add tomatoes and cook, stirring from time to time until they cook down, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour in reserved tomato juice and broth and add black pepper and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, add rice, then reduce heat to low. Simmer, partially covered, 45 minutes. Add peanut butter all at once, until it melts and is incorporated. Bring back to a simmer; serve hot.

Just wondering if anyone has tried making this soup? It sounds so good to me since I love peanut butter!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
