Vegetarian soup recipes: pea soup recipe.
Put a quart of dried peas into five quarts of water; boil for four
hours; then add three or four large onions, two heads of celery,
a carrot, two turnips, all cut up rather fine. Season with pepper
and salt. Boil two hours longer, and if the soup becomes too thick
add more water.
Strain through a colander and stir in a tablespoonful of cold butter.
Serve piping hot, with small pieces of toasted bread placed in the bottom
of the tureen.
