Fall must be on its way, cause all I want to eat is soup. Not that it is really quite cold enough for soup, yet. This recipe is my Grandmother’s and one I remember loving as a child. I have changed only a few things from her recipe. Ultimate comfort food.
Potato Pea Soup
1 tbs. olive oil
½ Onion (finely chopped)
3-4 Potatoes (mine were very large so I used 3) cut into ½ – 1 inch squares
½ tsp. salt
½ c Flour
1 C Half and half (can use Fat Free)
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 cups frozen green peas(or as much as you want)
In large sauce pan, brown onions in olive oil. Add potatoes. Fill the pan with water so that it covers potatoes by one inch. Boil potatoes until almost tender. Do not drain potatoes. Whisk flour and one cup water from pot until smooth. Add mixture and half and half to pot. Heat to boiling, making sure not to scorch the bottom. Add peas, and heat all the way through.
Let me know what you think!
