This week our assignment in French Fridays With Dorie was pea soup. At first, I wasn't too sure about this recipe - peas were cooked with romaine lettuce. This wasn't in my book a good combination. The kids were not too sure about it either. However, I persevered and made the recipe for our dinner. I am so glad I did:) So were the kids. This soup was delicious. The romaine lettuce added a wonderful flavor to the soup.
Peas, Onions, and Lettuce
This is a very easy and quick soup to make. You start by cooking an onion that has been diced in butter for about 3 minutes. You then season with salt and pepper and add broth - I used chicken broth. Bring the broth to a boil and then stir in the frozen peas and lettuce. Lower the heat and let the soup bubble away for 10 minutes. Puree the soup in batches. I let the soup cool down before I put it in the blender. Taste - adjust seasoning if necessary, and serve with a dollop of sour cream. I swirled some heavy cream into my soup. A perfect soup for an evening meal to take off the winter chill.
