A couple weeks ago I ordered green pea flour from Amazon, high in protein and iron. I’ve been adding it to my instant breakfast mix (recipe coming soon), and recently I decided to use it to make a soup. There’s a recipe for 3 minute soup on the bag, but it’s just flour, water and bouillon. That didn’t sound too awesome. So, I did a 15 minute version. Totally worth the wait. Makes 2 servings.
Saute onions, garlic and celery in oil over medium heat, season to taste with salt, pepper, parsley and a bit of onion powder (yes, it does taste different than fresh onions). Once the celery & garlic begin to soften and the onions are clear,
stirred it up, then added the water and heated & stirred until it thickened. The thickness was the same, but it did slightly alter the flavor, in a very pleasant way. I think it was just the added fat 🙂
the smoky flavor was a nice addition to the peas soup. I guess that’s why split pea and bacon is so popular, eh? I need to make my own facon, but meanwhile this seitan stuff is fun to play with. I found it was best to let it soak in the soup for a minute before eating.
What is your favorite soup to warm up with on a chilly fall evening?
