3) Add the broth and bring the contents to a boil.
4) Reduce the heat, cover the pan and gently simmer for about 30 minutes, till the celery is cooked and tender.
5) Let the mixture cool for a few minutes and then work it in a blender for some seconds, till smooth.

7) Place the pan over low heat, add the peanut butter and beat well.
8) Heat the mixture thoroughly till it is just boiling. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if required.
