Tuesday's Cupboard—My Best Pea Soup Recipe!

It does not get any simpler than this...peas, veg bouillon, curry powder & soy sauce!  A perfectly elegant Springtime supper

I've adapted this recipe for the crockpot & used frozen peas instead of garden fresh (which would also be wonderful).  I've added 2 double cubes of veggie bouillon to the mix because I've also doubled the amount of water.  This results in a fuller bodied soup.  I like to top it off with a teaspoon of grated Parmesan, a sprinkle of sunflower seeds (for texture), and some freshly ground black pepper.  
Serve with a simple salad made from cut up beets (found in the produce department), chunky fresh mozzarella, and heirloom tomatoes piled on top of a bed of fresh greens.  Drizzle with your favorite light salad dressing (I suggest Amy's or Paul Newman's) & a generous grinding of black pepper.

Super yummy & super easy!

Time for prep:  5 minutes
Cooking time in a crockpot:  1-1/2 to 2 hours on high
