At last, it’s cold out.  Hot chocolate and soup weather!  But with all the holiday shopping, you need to save a little money on food, so here is one of the cheapest easiest soups I make:

Pea Soup

3 shallots, chopped

1 bag frozen peas

rubbed thyme

salt and butter to taste

1/2 cup milk(optional)

1 blender

 

Heat a soup pot and melt a little butter on the bottom.  Cook the shallots in the butter until they are soft and kind of clear, or even a little brown.  Pour in the frozen peas, and cover with water.  Add salt and thyme to taste.  With me, that’s about a Tablespoon of each.  Cook until it boils.  Pour the soup into a blender and blend until smooth.  Then you put it back in the soup pan and stir in the milk.  Heat it back up if you want, or allow the milk to cool the soup to slurping temperature!
