Peanut Soup for Backpacking

Submitted by: MCMLXIV

Introduction

Based on a variation of Linda Frederick Yaffe's Peanut Soup, this is made with wheat germ instead of TVP. (I actually meant to use Bulgar Wheat but accidentally grabbed the wheat germ). It came out very thick and tasty. (Ready for the dehydrator) Based on a variation of Linda Frederick Yaffe's Peanut Soup, this is made with wheat germ instead of TVP.

    2 minced cloves garlic
    6 cups stock (any variety)

    4 oz canned diced green chilis

  • Sounds like an interesting recipe. But is it green beans or green chilies? Either or both would certainly be good. - 8/4/12
