Split Pea Soup with Romanian Smoked Salami Croutons
When the Hubby is sick you gotta make a soup
With the hubby under the weather, a soup was definitely in order.
With my new UX course, I’ve been trying to split my days between food blogging and course work. Today was a course day, which means I didn’t have time to leave the house to shop for groceries. So I had to make do with what I already had at home. I had carrots, celery, and a few potatoes left over from a massive bag the hubby bought awhile ago. It felt like a great start for a soup. As I remembered that I also had a bag of split peas, my friends were over talking about their Romanian smoked salami that they were willing to share with me! This quickly started sounding like a perfect smokey split pea soup! I added some cubed pastrami from Gourmet Glatt while it boiled, and it took it to a whole different level.
