As I’ve said many times before, I love me some peanut butter.

But, sadly, My Other Half thinks I’m hoarding it. So I’ve been on the hunt for recipes to use up my stash.

I was totally sold when I stumbled upon this “pantry superstar” Moroccan Tomato Soup recipe. Actually, I’d prefer to call it Peanut Butter & Tomato Soup. It sounds much wackier.

“Pantry superstar” is a term Canadian Living uses to refer to recipes that require no fresh ingredients – just what’s in your pantry. Obviously I’d rather use fresh veggies for cooking, but every now and then it’s nice not to have to go to the grocery store.

Also, I am a HUGE FAN of slow cooker soups. Dump everything in and leave it for 8 hours? Sold.

Shockingly fast, simple and delicious, this recipe is a true keeper. For me, at least.

Now tell me – could that recipe be any easier? I think not.
