- Melt the butter in a soup pot over medium heat. Add the celery, onion, garlic, and leek.
- Stir to coat evenly with butter.
- Cook, stirring frequently until the vegetables are softened, 4 to 6 minutes.
- Add the sweet potatoes, stock, peanut butter, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are fully tender about 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, spread the peanuts in a single layer in a pie pan. Toast the peanuts in the oven until light brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Shake the pan occasionally and watch carefully, as nuts can burn quickly. Let the peanuts cool, chop coarsely, and set aside.
- Place the remaining 1 cup heavy cream, molasses, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt into the container and secure the lid.
- Select Variable 1. Turn the machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High. Blend for 3–5 seconds or until the mixture stops circulating.
- Do not over-mix.
- Serve the sweet potato & peanut soup in heated bowls, garnished with the whipped cream and chopped peanuts.
