Re: Pea Soup

Forgive me, but I am puzzled.   What is a liquidizer?

I made this for our tea tonight, it was absolutely lovely!

Pea Soup

1/2 LB yellow split peas
 1/4 LB lentils
1 1/2 large onions, quartered
2 tomatoes, skinned and halved
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 leeks, white parts only, chopped
5 C water
1 vege stock cube
salt and black pepper

Put everything, except the salt and pepper, into a large pan, bring to the
boil and simmer for about an hour and a half.  Liquidize, re-heat, season
and serve. 

Adapted from a recipe by Linda and Paul Mcartney.

I have one of these hand held liquidizers, that you can just dip into the
pan.  It is one of the best kitchen gadgets I have ever bought.  I often
just dip it in once or twice, just to thicken a soup up.  It's so quick and
easy, much less work than trying to liquidize in batches, and then clean
the machine out.  If you're thinking of buying one, do it tomorrow!
