Pease Porridge Hot

Recipes

Classic pea soup doesn’t really need much in the way of modifications to make it a nutritious comfort food. This version begins with a classic French mirepoix and adds a bit of garlic for good measure. Bay leaf and parsley are suggested, but do change the flavor profile of a typical pea soup, so you may wish to omit them if your favor recipe doesn’t already call for them. Much of the salt in the recipe comes from slow cooking the peas with ham or a ham bone, so if modifying the recipe into a vegetarian option, you may wish to adjust the salt to taste.
