Who doesn't love soup? Especially on a chilly day?
Nobody! And if you don't like peas, well, we just don't know what to tell you!
Here's your Recipe of the Day from Mariko — Split Pea Soup!
Split Pea Soup
Peas are incredibly healthy; high in protein and packed with a variety of vitamins and minerals. This soup is hearty and will fill you up, without many calories. Serves 4
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 shallot, finely chopped
4 cups frozen peas
2 cups vegetable broth
Heat olive oil and shallot in a soup pot, over medium heat. Cook shallots until softened, about 3 minutes. Add peas and broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 10 minutes. Turn off heat and cool. Once cool, put small batches of mixture in food processor or blender, and puree until smooth. Return mixture to pot to warm, season with salt and pepper (to taste) and enjoy!
