Broad Bean Pea Soup
Marielle, Quebec, Quebec, Canada
I got this recipe in 1995 from the wife of a farmer who operates a stall at the Atwater Market in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
8 cups [2 L] beef broth or water
1 onion, minced
1 cup [250 mL] chopped cabbage
2 carrots, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
Salt and pepper, to taste
Savory, to taste
Parsley, to taste
Fine herbs, to taste
1 small piece salt pork
2 cups [500 mL] broad beans
1/2 cup [125 mL] barley
Bring together all the ingredients, except broad beans and barley, to a boil.
Stir in broad beans and barley.
Leave to simmer slowly for 2 to 3 hours before serving.
