I have a bad habit of seeing random ingredients at the supermarket and buying them. A month or so ago it was the turn of some Green Pea Flour that I saw at Milk Pail Market.
I can’t deny that part of the reason for buying it was so I could say to Mr M that I was going to add some “Pea-ness” to stuff. Because he has the sense of humour of a small child, and I knew he would snigger.
Anyhow, this morning I made him get up early (for a Sunday anyway), and we went on a 22 miles roundtrip cycle to Shoreline Park:
…and when we got back, I thought I would make something quick and easy to go with the Sourdough loaf I baked last night.
(This one was made with Dan, I know my intention was to pick one and stick with it, but I ended up keeping all of them going!)
I remembered that on the back of the pea flour packet, there was a recipe for quick pea soup, so I decided to give that a go, but with a little added something something!
Quick Pea and Mint Soup Recipe – adapted from the back of the pea flour packet. Serves 2 hungry adults.
3 cups hot water
1 tsp bouillon base – I used vegetable bouillon base
4 1/2 tbsp green pea flour
1 tsp dried mint
Combine all the ingredients in a medium sized pan, and whisk together to get rid of any lumps. Heat until gently bubbling, then cook over medium heat for 2 minutes until it has thickened slightly. Cover and allow to cool and thicken slightly, then serve!
While we were cycling, the cats were sleeping.
Silly lazy pusses.
