Somebody please remind my kids that someday they will be longing for food like mom used to make.

Green pea soup and a sceptical toddler

Green pea soup with horseradish créme fraiche
When big girl was younger, she was big into soup. She liked carrot soup the best, followed by chantarelle soup and pea soup. I used to make this pea soup for her, which she would gladly eat. It had been a while, so I thought I would try it out on the toddler. 

Stirring together grated horseradish and créme fraiche
chopped onions
Onions, peas, bouillion, and water
Mix until smooth, add some milk and a little S&P 
Topped with a dollop of horseradish créme fraiche, with some grilled ham and swiss on the side. 
This is what the toddler thought of it. She ate the insides of her grilled cheese and discarded the rest. Her comment on the soup was, and I quote, "Go away!".
I guess she isn't the soup girl her sister was/is. 

Here is where the recipe comes from. 

Green Pea soup with horseradish créme fraiche

1 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
600 g frozen peas
4 dl water
1.5 dl milk
1 vegetable bouillion cube
1.5 dl low fat créme fraiche
grated horseradish
Salt and pepper

Combine horseradish and créme fraiche to taste. Cover and refrigerate. 

Saute onion in olive oil in a stockpot until soft. Add peas, water, and bouillion cube. Boil for 8 minutes. Remove from heat and puree until smooth. Add milk, season to taste, and return to heat, warming to desired temperature. Serve with a dollop of the horseradish creme. Serves 4. If they actually eat it.
