Trekking and Tracking: Pea Soup with Red Beans, Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Sweet Corn

Pea soup

We checked out a local "Mediterranean" restaurant and this jumped off the page for me. I haven't made pea soup in over a year, and when I did, I wasn't too excited about it. This was delicious and is full of potential. What I have in mind:

1. Use coconut milk to make the pea soup creamy, or maybe almond milk.

2. Instead of red beans, use red lentils or brown lentils.

3. Go bigger with the sun-dried tomatoes, or maybe go with a sun-dried tomato pesto to drizzle on top like I did with the zucchini, kale and broccoli soup.

4. Corn is corn. Why reinvent the wheel?
