|French Canadian Pea Soup|
|From:||Marielle, Quebec, Quebec, Canada|
A really lean soup.|
For a tastier soup, add a ham bone or 1/2 pound [227 g] tiny lean salt pork dices to the casserole; when done, remove ham bone from soup and finely dice ham meat before adding ham dices to the soup.
Celery stalk can be diced before adding and left in soup.
If possible, use homemade chicken broth or leftover liquid from 'bouilli'. boiled whole chicken and vegetables instead of water; if using water, you can add some chicken broth concentrate adding half of what is usually added, 1 teaspoon [5 mL] instead of 2 teaspoons [10 mL] per cup [250 mL] of water.
As this soup really thickens when refrigerated, reheat leftover soup and, if needed, thin the soup to taste with a little more chicken broth, or water.
