    1 tsp salt
    1 tbsp Chinese chili paste (I used Thai)*
    6 cups water

    3 tbsp soy sauce
    2 tbsp fresh lime juice
    a few fresh lime wedges

1. In a soup pot on medium heat, warm the oil and add the onions, carrots, celery, salt, and chili paste. Saute on high heat for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the water, cover, and bring to a boil.. Lower the heat and simmer until the carrots are soft, about 25 minutes.
2. Stir in the peanut butter, soy sauce, and lime juice. In a blender, puree the soup in batches (or use an immersion hand blender). Reheat, if necessary.
3. Serve with lime wedges.
