"Peanuts - which are really a legume not nuts -came originally from Brazil but today they are cultivated around the world and especially in Africa and the United States." To begin with, heat the oil in a saucepan & cook the onion until it becomes transparent. Add the ground peanuts or peanut butter, potatoes and a little stock and mash well. Alternatively, put these ingredients into a blender.

Now pour the rest of the stock slowly into the puree, mixing well.

Bring the soup to a boil, then let it simmer, covered, for 5-10 minutes. after this, remove the pot from the heat and season. Stir in the cream before serving (if desired), sprinkling the chives on top.
