Did you include small pieces or boiled bones of needlessly murdered animals? Most Americans make it this way. I've been told that it's the murder that gives it flavor but when I've eaten iit all I taste is dead pig.

I do not put potatoes in as I am freezing it and do not like frozen potatoes unless they are mashed with butter or encased in some sort of fat.

I make split pea usually once a year. It'll last until next winter. I do use ham and of course make my own broth.

I would happily trade some for black bean, I love all legumes except lentils. I make a spinach and white beans soup and a chick pea soup too. please share your black beans soup recipe!

I was bummed, I accidentally got fila dough instead of puff pastry for the pot pie tops and now I need to figure out what to do with all of it (the dough)

I made ciabatta rolls to go with the soup today, throughout the year I may add potatoes to individual servings after I defrost

Try making spanikopita with the Phyllis pastry. That's what I use it for. Layer it like lasagna don't bother making individual triangles. Too much trouble.

I made split pea soup, too. I use yellow potatoes, but I don’t freeze my soup.

No carrots, but lots of caramelized onions and some diced tomato.

by Anonymousreply 35November 29, 2023 10:58 PM

I am not a great recipe sharer because I never measure anything.

I rinse 2/3rds of the peas I will be using. Put them in water with bay leaves and a 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. cook.

Roast the ham bones and bits and pieces with onions and carrot ends until dark deep brown. In a separate pot, make the broth with the roasted everything. Simmer at least 4 hours.

Once the broth is done and strained add to the cooked peas and hit it all with an immersion blender. Add the other 1/3rd uncooked peas to the pot and simmer. add a few finely chopped onions and finely chopped celery, continue to simmer for an hour. add sliced carrots, some lemon juice, basil, oregano, ham, pepper and garlic. simmer until carrots and peas are soft. add a stick of butter. dinner.

Nobody asked, but this is my recipe for split pea soup:

Caramelized onions, lots

1 lb. split peas, soaked (in the fridge). Don't discard the soaking water. Use the soaking water in your soup.

1 Tbsp. dried oregano

2 Tbsp. smoked paprika

2-3 lbs. yellow potatoes, diced

28-oz. can of diced tomatoes

1 Tbsp. Diamond Crystal kosher salt. If using regular salt, cut that in half or so.

I eat this with some cheese.

This thread reminds me of this curried split pea soup recipe from DL fave Bar Bush (found in one of my mom's old cookbooks). The instruction in all caps "MUST BE REALLY COLD!" cracks me up, I can see cranky old Bar yelling at some WH cook that they screwed up the soup because it's room temperature.

by Anonymousreply 69December 1, 2023 12:45 PM

r69 Pizza frite is a small(about the size of 2 playing cards) thin piece of pizza dough. Slashed through 3 or 4 times, then deep-fried until golden. Sprinkle with salt, and you have a good and different bread to go along with your soup. Instead of salt, some people like to dust it with powdered sugar for a sweet treat. Mangia bene!

My black bean soup is one of those clean out the refrigerator recipes.

I make chicken stock regularly for most of my soups with the leftovers from roast chicken (I freeze them until I have 2 or 3), all the leftover vegetables in the refrigerator, at least one chopped onion, garlic, salt, some Mediterranean spice, maybe a bay leaf. Simmer at least 4- 6 hours. Once this is strained, chilled to remove the fat, I freeze it in quart baggies.

For black bean soup, I brown 1 lb. lean ground beef and strain. Remove the meat from the pan and use the drippings to sauté one chopped yellow onion, 3- 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped celery (2- 3 stalks), 1/2 finely chopped green pepper. Add these vegetables and the cooked meat to a large soup pot, mix in anout 2 qts. chicken stock, one can chopped tomatoes, 1/2 can tomato sauce, plus 2- 3 cans of black beans with the juice, or about 6 cups pre-cooked, if using dried beans. Stir in 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1 tbsp. Kikoman, add chili powder, salt and pepper to taste. Badia complete spice is also a good option. Let simmer for at least an hour, then add one can of black beans that were pureed in a blender to thicken. I usually simmer for another 30 minutes or so.

I may add a half can of beer for variety and play with the spices, depending on what I have. Very basic, but my family likes it.

I will be making my spaghetti sauce tomorrow, and also Thai basil chicken and I'll make enough of both to freeze. I may also do a minestrone soup. My problem is I don't have enough freezer space to get carried away. My sister once suggested I wait until the food has cooled then spoon it into plastic freezer bags. They take up less space. And no, I am not jealous. I admire your industry.

I make lentil soup about once a month in the winter. I usually use canned lentils. Last time I did not and the FODMAPS were off the chart an not amenable to office work. Anyhow, the lentil soup is dead easy. Just sautee onion, garlic with some olive oil. Throw in carrot and celery. Then one red pepper and a jalpeno. Add chicken stock, the lentils (drained and rinsed) and Italian seasoning. Simmer for 40 mins, but is better the next day. A great easy, go to soup. Hearty and healthy!

by Anonymousreply 76December 3, 2023 7:13 AM

r76 To "tame" the lentils cook them with summer savory, or better yet, epazote. Also try adding an acid to the cookpot or each bowl, suggestions are: vinegar, lemon juice and tomatoes.💨💨💨

My "secret" for cooking beans is to not discard the soaking liquid. I also do the overnight soak in salted water.

I cook the beans in the soaking liquid and it makes a nice broth. No need to add other kinds of stock.

I do thicken with Maseca corn masa. I want to try the Bob's Red Mill corn masa as it's supposed to have more of a corn flavor than Maseca.

I made chicken stew! Soso good! Cut up two chicken breasts in smallish chunks, sauteed in olive oil with crushed garlic, salt pepper and Penzies Tuscan Sunset mix of spices. After it was brown, I sauteed carrots, broccoli, chopped brussel sprouts, green beans, one russet potato and onion, then combined them with the chicken pieces, salt pepper, and seasoning, and made a gravy with pan drippings and chicken bullion. It was delicious. I froze two containers with two more servings in each container.
