Accidents and laziness can bring great things. Today D and I reached a new low: we were too lazy to cook so we decided to go out and eat, only to decide to stay home and cook 15 minutes later because we were too lazy to get dressed to go out. Figured.
Anyway, because we were lazy, we pretty much threw everything in the fridge together in the quickest, simplest, most delicious combination (ok, this last part is made up. We didn’t know it’d be delicious until later). Soup. The most beautiful thing/brainchild of laziness on a rainy day. Also, no chilled soup. Chilled soup gives me the heebie jeebies.
Ingredients (sounds fancy; really just leftovers from the fridge)
1 bag of frozen petite sweet peas
1 parsnip, sliced thin
1 white onion, cut into chunks
1/4 a bunch of cilantro, or 1 cup of roughly chopped cilantro
1.5 cup of chicken broth, or vegetable broth if you’re vegetarian
5 tbs of Greek yogurt/labne/strained normal liquidy not very good American yogurt
Salt to taste
1. Cook everything in one pot with the broth, in this order: parsnip & onion, for about 15 mins, then peas, for 5 more mins, then cilantro, for 2 minutes. The key is not to overcook the peas and cilantro, otherwise you’d end up with a very unappealing green color soup!
2. Blend everything in a blender/food processor, mix in yogurt. Eat!
If you’re fussy like me (!gasp!) you can saute some onion and put on top.
