Today we will be making the Sour Cream, Bacon, and Split Pea Soup Recipe from Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible vegan. My thoughts, ingredients, measurements, and directions are available below.
Day 40 Recipe 40 Southern Queen of Vegan Cuisine:
Not another soup. It is physically impossible for me to make or eat more soup. I still have soup in the refrigerator. Growing up on the standard American diet, I did not eat a lot of soup. When I did, they were not fresh healthy soups like these. They were sodium rich canned soups. To our detriment, we do not eat in the fashion anymore. People want to grab a burger, or sandwich, or a bag of something. How can I turn this wholesome meal into something that I would want to eat and that other people want to eat too.
A slider! Sliders peeked in popularity a few years ago, but they are still a fun excuse to eat a burger. Veggie burgers are so easy to make and so diverse in texture, flavor, and style that I never get tired of them. Instead of blending my split peas down into a boring texture-less soup, I am going to mash it into a burger.
Split Pea Slider Recipe
1/2 cup split peas
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup oatmeal
4 whole wheat buns
ketchup, mustard, and other toppings
Bring the split peas and water to a simmer in a large pot.
Cook the peas for 30 minutes. They should be mushy but not completely falling apart.
Drain the water from the peas and add them to a bowl.
Season the peas with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and oatmeal.
Mash and mix the peas with a fork.
Scoop an ice cream scoops worth of the green mixture onto a whole wheat bun.
Top with ketchup, mustard, and whatever you prefer of your burger. Enjoy.
