Hello all and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to you!! Hope it fills you with love, peace, prosperity, good health and all the joys of the world. We had a great ending to 2016 with an amazing Disney Bahamas Cruise with magical skies,gorgeous blue waters and warm sunny weather.Kids had an equally great time with onboard activities that included a Pirate Party and meeting famous Disney Characters.With the copious amounts of food (and alcohol) that we consumed, it’s now time to eat healthy and light.
My first recipe of 2017 is a delicious Pea Soup that I’ve been making and enjoying over the years. Pea is an under-rated vegetable but I love its versatility cut across different cuisines. I love Peas added into my Indian stews, curries and pasta, but this sweet soup is all I crave for in this cold weather. I’ve used Frozen peas here but it tastes equally good.
The sweet shallots go well with peas and fresh parsley adds a lovely lemony flavor to the soup. It’s delicious with any crusty bread of your choice or on its own. The vibrant green color is in great contrast to the snow outside (if you live in a cold area like me). I usually make a big batch and have it for two or three days in a row. So so good. Enjoy and stay warm.
