Whenever I’m back in the US visiting family, I always take my wife and kids to Pea Soup Andersons. It’s a pea soup restaurant. How’s that for focussed?
I’ve been going there since I was a kid. Back then it was the only restaurant between our home in Turlock and the coast. It was a nice pit stop.
My son Joe fell in love with the place and insisted we tried making something similar at home. At Pea Soup Andersons, the pea soup is always served with chucks of ham, cheese, spring onions and croutons to top you soup with. This is very exciting for kids believe me.
We first made this copycat recipe about ten years ago and it’s still a family favourite today, especially when it’s cold outside.
So here you go. Enjoy. This soup is not only quite filling, it’s delicious and good for you too.
