Bone Broth Spicy Peanut Soup / by Rosie Berger

If you’ve ever been to Spicy Noodle House on Osborne in Winnipeg, this soup will be VERY familiar. I didn’t make it as an exact copy - I just knew I wanted a peanut-y veggie soup for what’s left of this damned winter. Gotta say, this definitely hits the spot - plus your tummy will seriously thank you for putting some bone broth in it.
