Leek & Pea Soup

It’s been almost a month since I got braces and I’m still not a huge fan of eating solid food. Enter my food hero - soup. This soup is bright green and incredibly delicious. I didn’t follow a recipe and I don’t think you ever need to for soup. Put things that you think will taste great together in a pot and 20 or 30 minutes later you have soup. 

I started this soup with caramelized onions. Normally I don’t have enough patience to wait for onions to caramelize but in the end, it’s worth the wait. Next I added sliced leeks. Discarding the green tops and the very bottoms, you’re not left with much but it’s the best part. These need to soak in a bowl of water to remove any hidden dirt before cooking (see photo below). I seasoned with salt, pepper, and herb de provence. Once cooked, I added about a cup of water and a cup or so of frozen pees. When the peas were warmed through I tossed this mixture into the blender with a tablespoon of sour cream (omit if you’re not down with dairy). 30 seconds on mix and dinner was served! Easy and tasty, my kind of meal.
