Pea soup :: Sopa de guisantes

I remember once when we ended up having for dinner always the same. I mean 4 dishes that we switched during the week and repeated all over again. And when you have done it for two weeks it is ok but not for 4 anymore. So I decided to get into the cooking books. And there is where I got this really yummy soup. 

  • 500 gr. of frozen peas
  • 100 ml. of chicken broth
  • 1 onion
  • 1 leek
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

First of all, chop the onion and the leek and stir-fry them in a pot.
Once they are browned, put the peas and give them a couple of stirs to chill them from the frozen state. Right away, pour the chicken broth and bring it to boil.
Cook it for 5-10 minutes.

Then, it is time to blend it! You have got two options: the standard mixer (consisting of a bar, finished in blades or rods, rotating at high speed) or the blender I am using in the picture which is much better to get a softer soup and make everything cleaner and easier. If you want to use this last option, you should wait for 15' to cool down the pea soup.

Empty the saucepan in the blender glass and mash up the pea mixture for 5'.

Now, you are ready to serve and enjoy this traditional food in a different way of eating.
