A quick post about tonight’s dinner. It was chilly last night and this morning and I was craving soup, so I perused the list of recipes that fall into my plan. I decided on Double Pea Soup with Roasted Red Peppers from Veganomicon, which I have been wanting to try for a while.
The soup is very good! It’s nothing blow-your-mind phenomenal, but it’s a nice twist on split pea soup. The peas, red pepper and ginger lend a fresh flavor that split pea doesn’t normally have. Although next time I might try it with fresh bell pepper instead of roasted to make it even more fresh.
I thought about making rolls to eat along with the soup, but wasn’t feeling up to making more than one recipe tonight, so I picked up Trader Joe’s harvest multigrain loaf. It was a perfect complement to the soup. It’s not 100% whole grain, but it tastes very hearty and healthy. It has seeds and crunchy grains throughout, and sopped up the soup really well.
