Fire Roasted Split Pea Soup
I am so excited about this recipe! Not only was my home smelling delicious for hours this evening, I was able to create something out of split peas that tasted so mind blowingly awesome that it made me jump up and down for joy!
Yes, I was and still am this excited about it! I can get emotional over food, okay? So anyway, I have not been able to look at split pea soup since I was a child. Mom used to make it and, no offense mom really, I would try to sneak it down the sink drain. I don’t know if it had to do with the texture, the color, the meat that was in it or that flavored it or what, it just wasn’t something I wanted to ingest.
Well, I was at the farmer’s market many months ago and picked up some ‘green lentils’ or so I thought. No, they were split peas, so, they have been sitting there in their little container for a very long time. I was afraid, very afraid.
Tonight though, I decided I was going to make soup with them, and gosh darnit, it was going to be fantastic. Well, this recipe is Fantamazing!
I dressed it up in a bowl surrounded by mashed potatoes. This was inspired by one of my Facebook friends. It was a great idea and I highly recommend it! Thanks Nora!
