Comfort Food – 18 December 2006

This morning I made one of my “comfort foods” – Green Split Pea Soup.

As we usually do, I made enough to last a couple of days. This time I added two diced potatoes to the ingredients below, and I used only one chipotle pepper because the last ones we bought are much hotter. I really like the smoke flavor that chipotles add; and if I didn’t have the chipotles, I would use “liquid smoke” (I have a large bottle of it – no animal products in it) and cayenne pepper. I should also mention that we like our soups very thick!

2 lbs Split Peas, dried
12 cups water
2 tsp Oregano, dried
4-6 Bay Leaves
2 Chipotle Peppers (smoked jalapeno peppers)
3 Cloves Garlic
4 Onions, medium size
1 lb Carrots
4-5 Ribs Celery

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
