    Emerill Legasse's Pea Soup. 1st place winner;

    Split Pea Soup

    1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
    2 cups chopped yellow onions
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1 tablespoon chopped garlic
    1 bay leaf
    1 pound dried green or yellow split peas picked over and rinsed
    8 cups chicken broth
    1 cup milk
    1.2 teaspoon hot sauce
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onions, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the garlic bay leaf and split peas, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the broth and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes, until the peas are tender.

    Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. Remove the bay leaf and discard. Add the milk and, using a handheld immersion blender, (or in a regular blender in batches), process until smooth. Add the hot sauce and serve hot.

    Makes about 8 servings.

    Wow - Chicken broth, garlic and peas - Perfect.
    I wonder is you could shorten the cooking time with washed frozen peas instead - good use of milk not cream to keep it quite healthy.

    I might serve it with herb croutons or even tiny squares of fired crisp bacon. mmm

    I don't think using frozen or fresh peas will work. Please note that they are dried split peas. My wife has prepared this a number of times, and it is delicious, and depending on the amount of red chili flakes, and hot sauce you use, it'll warm the cockles of your heart, and other parts.Wink
