A quick and easy recipe with two unexpected ingredients that give to the peas velvet soup even a more delicious taste.
The Peas Velvet Soup is one of my favorite comfort food for fall / winter season. Rainy days and first cold ones, the dark that come early in the evening and getting back home looking for some more cuddles. That beautiful sensation of closing cold temperature outside the door, finding a cozy atmosphere inside the house.
I love to try new experiments while I am in the kitchen and this is an experimental version of the classic peas velvet soup, that comes out adding Pecorino Romano Cheese to give it a much more tasty effect, that looks somehow unexpected. I love the mix & match between the Italian cheese and the bacon that definitely is much more anglo-saxon. It is such a mix of flavors that made me fell in love with, so the experiment became one of my favorite dishes of the season that I love to frequently cook for my family and that is so much loved also by my little son.
Only few ingredients and some quick step to cook it but with an amazing result. Those beautiful recipes that we mostly love because they are easy to cook and you don’t have to think too much at it while cooking. Those recipes that save your dinners even after a long day at work with the fridge almost empty. Those ones that you can decide to cook last minutes and that, despite that, gives you that amazing cosy feeling.
Because this is definitely cozy and cuddles season, on the sofa under a blanket but also in the kitchen with creamy velvet soups and comfort food. Just add some good red wine and enjoy it with no rush.
