Break up pea soup is consolation in a bowl. And while you add an entire bunch of greens and prepare dinner them till they’re meltingly tender, it turns into excessive consolation.
I’d often pooh-pooh the thought of overcooking greens, however right here the mushiness works completely with the peas. The recent herbs maintain it, effectively, recent. To pump up the flavour, I used caraway seeds, tamari and importantly, smoked salt. (Just like the black salt I described in my last post, smoked salt is an ingredient it is best to get your fingers on.) I really like this soup as is, however the subsequent time I make it, I’m going to experiment with including an entire head of roasted garlic, and triple the quantity of recent herbs. As a result of, why not?
Admittedly, this may not be the prettiest soup (I hope by no means to cut up pea soup once more!), however the dietary worth is fairly superb. It’s full of protein, fiber, vitamin A and potassium. And my recipe is vegan, gluten-free and low fats as well.
This made my husband and I’m wondering why on the planet we don’t make cut up pea soup extra typically. I feel we completed a giant pot in two days and nonetheless needed extra. Don’t let winter go by with out making this one, okay?
