As a Yank who resided in London for many years, I have a passion for marrowfat peas. This recipe is superb, and couldn't be easier.
This was 5 stars for several reasons: It tasted DIVINE!! It was easy to make and the instructions were WELL laid out and easy to follow; the ingredients were imaginative for just a "pea" soup - I LOVED the unusual additions of spinach, leeks, chervil, garden peas AND lettuce leaves, AND, it ALL worked so well!! I make marrowfat pea soup and I have several French and English recipe versions; however, this recipe bridged the gap between my pea soup recipes and I LOVED that.....it was imaginative and comforting. I made NO changes as all the ingredients were easy to source and I had some already in the pantry - a SUPERB soup, which was elegant & VERY healthy! Thanks Kathy for posting this soup - I have kept in some of my cookbooks for later delectation!!!
