A lovely light and homemade pea soup with crayfish and a few drops of delicious olive oil. A flavorful tasty entree.
When you serve a multi-course dinner, as I've done with this Christmas menu that I'm blogging it's important that the dishes have a lot of flavor, but don't make you to full to soon. Otherwise you may not pass course 3. These fresh pea soup is nice and airy, with a great flavor and the crayfish add a delicious bite to it. The peppery olive oil makes this soup complete.
- you blend the whole peas and sift them afterwards you get a green thin soup, which stays light.
- you use homemade vegetable broth, you probably should add some salt and pepper at taste. When you use store-bought stock, an extra addition of salt and pepper is most of the times not necessary.
- you don't cook the crayfish along with the soup, it's also very suitable for vegetarian guests. You can add some cream for a delightful accent.
