Love veggie pea soup. Some variations in my kitchen:
Fresh thyme, shallots, garlic, dash of liquid smoke and a butter roux before blending with my immersion blender.
Sinfully good with a loaf of crusty bread.
Very tasty and simple to make! Perfect for vegetarians and easy to adapt as needed.
So simple and so delicious! I added a diced potato to mine, and at the end of the cooking time I pureed the whole thing using an immersion blender in order to get the thickness that I like. Along with some warm, crusty bread and a side salad, this soup makes a hearty, filling, and nutritious meal. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing!
Good to have a vegetarian version of this soup. Very easy to make. After one hour simmering the soup was thick and mushy. Did not blend it, mushy enough! We like pea soup to be thick and I did not thin it but after eating it we decided that next time I make it it would be better to thin it a bit. I added 1/3 cup of finely chopped parsnip and 1 tsp salt. It was a warming and hearty soup. Thanks for posting.
Very good and easy vegetarian version. I liked how it was creamy but still had some texture. I added some minced garlic, extra thyme and a little rosemary. This is so simple to put together... I'll make this again on a chilly day. Thanx!
I made this for PAC spring 2007 and it was good. I added a bit of Cayenne pepper (I like it with a touch of warmth). Very good and good for you too :) Thanks Bitterman!!! Barbara
