Black-Eyed Pea Soup

This is a perfect soup for a cold snowy day. It warms up your whole body, and makes you happy. Trust me😊

A glass of red wine, a crunchy baguette, and the beautiful wintry view outside paired with this hearty soup will keep you cozy even when it's chilly out.

So good and easy to make! 


1 onion, thinly chopped

1 long carrot, thinly chopped

1 parsnip, thinly chopped or grated

2 celery stalks, thinly chopped

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 tablespoons semolina flour

1 tablespoon shawarma spice

2 cups black-eyed peas soaked overnight and drained

1 tablespoon vegetable base

5 cups boiling water

1 bunch fresh cilantro, thinly chopped



In a heavy soup pot add olive oil and the onion, sauté for a few minutes, then add the rest of the chopped vegetables. Keep sautéing for a few minutes, then add the semolina flour and shawarma spices, and sauté for a couple of minutes. Then, add the water, vegetable base, and the black-eyed peas.

Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 30 minutes until the beans are completely softened.

Serve hot with a nice crunchy baguette to dip.
