DIRECTIONS

  • In a stockpot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add pancetta and cook out all the fat. Add garlic and shallot, saute until tender. Add onion, celery and carrot, saute until tender.
  • Stir in split peas; combine well. Add chicken stock, thyme, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until peas are soft and are falling apart. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  • Place a few ladles of soup into a blender and add a couple handfuls of spinach. Blend until spinach is incorporated. Place soup in a second pot. Repeat with remaining soup and spinach. Warm soup over very low heat.
