The versatility of pea soup :o)

Slice of pea soup anyone? It's good stuff this, could lay bricks with it, ha ha. I left the soup in the pan overnight to find it had set like a blancmange, I can slice it into cake size pieces. 
I couldn't resist trying a spoonfull while it was cold, and do you know it tastes quite nice. It has a nutty pea taste due to the toasted sesame seed oil I put in. I filled five plastic pots. I was going to freeze it but I don't think I will bother now. I'll leave it in the fridge and use it up. I think I've invented another version of hummus. Wonder if I ought to find a backer for my new fledgling business, I might be able to get it in all the major supermarkets.
Spread it on wholemeal bread, add grated cheese, it makes a great sandwich.
I like inventing new things to eat. Toodle pip.

    1. Yes, I think toast would be better, I'll try it.

  2. Evening from House fairy.
    Looking at that, the pea soup would clearly come under what I call " funny stuff". After going past the dog it would be in the bin.
    My adult daughter laughs at what I call "funny stuff" Oh mum!.

    I have just got out of my freezer tonight some sausages I acquired, when someone we know was house moving... clearly given the same title "funny stuff" They look like German frankfurt. Husband said pop them on the George tomorrow and he will try them. The dog likes being called a helpful waste not green dog, so will share. Me, no thanks. I am to set in my ways.
    take care...

  3. You are so funny, I laughed out loud when I saw your sandwich. I expect the wind to pick up round your part of Lincolnshire!
    This is my favourite blog, you never know what's in store.

  4. I say! You could market that as Posh Pea Pate!! Funnily enough my brother used to love mushy peas on toast when he was little - smothered in mint sauce! And our local chippy used to do "pea balls" which were basically balls of mushy peas, coated in batter and deep fried!

  5. I think that sandwich would be good if it was toasted and warm, but not cold!!!

  6. When we used to go up to Newcastle we always made a bee line for the market and bought some stottie cakes and peas to spread on the bread. Beautiful :)

  9. I hate to sound like a scaredy cat, (my husband is rolling his eyes at me as I type this.) I would have been afraid to try it after it had been sitting out at room temperature for so long. Hopefully, wind in your part in Lincolnshire is the only side effect you will be feeling later. Other than that you may be on to something. Toasted sesame oil makes everything taste better. :)

    1. Hi Cat. My room temperature is lower than everyone elses. I normally buy out of date hummus which takes me a week to eat. Not had any side effects yet. Only chuck it if it stinks rotten or has mould growing on it.

  10. Well you should have seen my daughter's face when she saw your sandwich. I told her I was getting ideas for her packed lunch :0 Your new dish reminds me a bit of pease pudding, which I used to love. It seems to have gone out of fashion but Delia Smith has a lovely recipe for it.

  11. Looks like you've made your own peas pudding there.
    I love peas pudding from a tin with bacon.
