This Week: French Canajun Pea Soup, Eh??
Saturday, November 05, 2011
Checking out the fridge: carrots celery and a brand new unopened package of sliced ham just a few days past its best-by date. (I don't eat ham generally: buy it for DH's lunch sandwiches. It's just too Charlotte's Web for me . . . But OK, gonna use it up! )
In the cupboard: a full bag of yellow split peas. And some sage and thyme and dried minced onion. And some red pepper flakes for oomph.
A very easy simmer of everything but the ham in about 10 cups of water until veggies and split peas all soft -- and then pureed about a quarter of it in my food processor. And stirred the puree back in with the diced ham.
Smells great, high protein and comforting too . . . eh?
Je l'aimerai beaucoup chaque soir toute cette semaine suivante . . . yeah!! Moi, je suis canadienne!!
