The cuisines of warm lands around the globe from Africa to Asia have incorporated the South American native, the peanut. The southeastern United States is no exception. Peanut soup is a hallmark of eastern Virginia cooking and part of the legacy of African cooks who introduced the legume (after receiving it from the Portuguese slave traders) to North America.
