Split Pea Soup with Portobellos
Meaty portobellos are especially good but shiitakes or other mushrooms will work well, too. You can also add a ham hock to the pot while the split peas cook, if you like.

4 tablespoons olive oil
2 carrots, chopped
2 onions, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1-2/3 cups split peas
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
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 cheese
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper




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.

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.

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.


Wine Recommendation: You’ll need a white wine with body and lots of character to stand up to a hearty pea soup like this one. Greco di Tufo, with its full texture and big, nutty taste, is made for the job.

Groundnut Stew

Peanut butter and okra flavor and thicken this tasty African stew. You can substitute green beans for the okra, if you like; the consistency of the sauce won’t be quite the same, but it will still be thick enough to cling to the chicken.

From south of the border comes this spicy and hearty soup ladled over crisp tortilla strips and grated cheddar. The soup is chunky with chicken and avocado, but it’s the tortillas that give it a slight thickness and a special flavor.
