I propose to cook a simple pea soup with beef. I just love pea soups, but often there is no possibility to cook them. One day, after cooking some salad, more than half a can of peas remained, and I came up with this quick recipe. My soup with canned green peas does not take much time. The secret of speed - finely chopped and pre-fried meat, like beef stroganoff.
The soup turns out to be thick, fragrant and nourishing, I would even say, very similar to ratatouille. Canned green peas can be replaced with frozen peas, it also boils quickly.
I also advise you to cut white bread into cubes and dry them in the oven or in the pan - a classic addition to this first dish, and in addition to the croutons you can dry thin slices of smoked bacon in the oven. In general, let go of fantasy in flight, the more add-ons, the more delicious it will be!
