Cookbook Countdown#15: Pea soup

 I have this bag of dried green peas (from my pea shoots growing expedition)
and thought might as well cook them.  Soaked them in the morning (should have
soaked them the night before - hence it would require a shorter cooking time
(there was quite a fair bit of soup - I put half to chill in the fridge)
garnish was finely chopped mint leaves mixed with creme fraiche
and toasted almond flakes
from pages 270-271 of
Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Every Day
headed by the lovely leader
is back! 
We are attempting to cook from both River Cottage Every Day (RCED) for all,
and River Cottage Love Your Leftovers (RCLYL) - optional!
I will do a round up of the dishes I make from Hugh's book on the 28th
of each month, but since I cannot wait that long, I am posting them as I make them!
I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
Cookbook Countdown has a new website :

We are happy to inform everyone that Cookbook Countdown has it's very own website blog, which you can find here. Effective from May 2016, please link your posts at the Cookbook Countdown new website, in the linky provided. We hope to see you there! Thank you!
