This Smoky, spicy pea soup from Cookin’ Crunk by Bianca Phillips (page 75) is just perfect for autumn lunches.
Made using peas, barley, chipotle chilis in adobo sauce, lots of veggies, and spices, it definitely warms you up inside with it’s healthy, hearty goodness!
This is a simple dish to make. We doubled the recipe, which made enough soup for lunches for two people for a week and left some over to freeze for future lunches.
Pea Soup Facts (from Wikipedia): Pea soup has been eaten since antiquity; it is mentioned in Aristophanes’ The Birds, and according to one source “The Greeks and Romans were cultivating this legume about 500 to 400 BC. During that era, vendors in the streets of Athens were selling hot pea soup.”
