This may look like baby food(or something worse?) but I promise you it’s not.
It’s yellow split pea soup, inspired by this recipe by the wonderful Nigella Lawson 🙂
I adapted it of course. I’ve previously added the Frankfurter sausages as suggested in the original recipe – great and hearty meal. This time I had left-overs from a joint of gammon which I had cooked in the Slow-Cooker, so in to the pot it went. Oh my word….
It was thick and warming and satisfying – soup with a chew. Smoky flavours add a whole new dimension to a meal, which I love. It’s a cheap meal to make, it will serve many. If you use the Frankfurters it’s fun – a great way of encouraging the kids to eat veg.
Remember I said I don’t do watery or sloppy in this post? This soup fits that requirement perfectly. I have two portions remaining in the freezer for another day – I’m sure the smokiness develops the longer it’s left.
How do you like the texture of your soups?
