Reading through this week’s French Friday’s with Dorie recipe gave me pause. The ingredients for this pea soup included onions, peas, broth and romaine lettuce. Romaine lettuce? I’d never heard of such a thing, but Dorie explained that this is the soup version of classic French dish: peas with onions and lettuce. Who knew? So I followed the recipe…adding a clove of garlic as my own little tweak…and pureed this concoction till it was a lovely, vibrant shade of green. This soup can go from pot to bowl in about 15 minutes…love that! We left town unexpectedly after I made this soup, so I parked it in the freezer. I have a feeling Bill will give it a thumbs up (mums the word on the secret ingredient!). I sampled a few spoonfuls of this Cheating-on-Winter Pea Soup with Crispy Prosciutto and found it to be delicious and refreshing.
