Split Pea & Portobello Mushroom Soup (Food & Wine)

Submitted by: SMLJRL

Introduction

Meaty portobellos are especially good for adding substance and flavor to this soup, but shiitakes or other mushrooms will work well, too. You can also add a ham hock (not included in nutrition calculations) to the pot while the split peas cook, if you like.

Ingredients

    4 tablespoons olive oil
    2 carrots, chopped
    2 onions, chopped
    2 ribs celery, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 2/3 cups green split peas
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    9 cups water
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 bay leaf
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 pound portobello mushrooms, stems removed, caps cut into 1/2-inch dice
    6 tablespoons grated Parmesan
    1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper

Directions

1. In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over moderate heat. Add the carrots, onions, celery, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes.

2. Add the split peas, parsley, water, thyme, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook at a low boil, covered, until the peas are almost tender, about 35 minutes. Add 1 3/4 teaspoons of the salt and simmer 5 minutes longer. Remove the bay leaf.

3. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick frying pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil over moderately high heat. Add the mushrooms and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook until the mushrooms brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the soup and bring back to a simmer. Stir in the Parmesan and pepper.
