Here’s the recipe for the pea soup I made last night
I never liked pea soup until I had this one! It’s probably b/c it doesn’t use split peas
Pictures of the kitty that hangs out around my house
About 1 lb of Either fresh or frozen peas
about 1-2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil (actually TraderJoes had frozen cubes of basil that work GREAT if you can’t get fresh basil)
Salt and pepper to taste.
First clean the Leeks (refer to my post on Leeks if you need any pointers)
Combine leeks and shallots in frying pan (medium heat) with oil until veggies become translucent. Add basil
While those are cooking- cook your peas as you normally would
Drain peas and put into pan with the leek mixture (just so the flavors blend together a bit.)
Add half of the mixture into a blender of food processor and blend till and large chunks are gone.
Repeat with the second half of the mixture.
I like to add a little splash soy milk while I’m blending too.
Put it all in a bowl (reheat if necessary)
You can strain it if you don’t like chunky soup but I prefer the extra texture.
Let me know what you think. I’m trying to build a bunch of recipes so that eventually I can make a cookbook : )
