soup is so easy.
saute an onion,
some sausage chunks (slip the casing off),
when that's brown,
add whatever spices you want,
then cover the whole mess with water or stock.
below is quick stock i made with sausage casings,
random veg scraps like onion ends and papers,
a squeezed lemon half.
let it come to a boil,
then turn it waaaay down and cover.
you can stir it every now and then,
if you did the slow cooker thing then
just set it and forget it!
well for about an 1 1/2 to 2 hrs anyway.
the peas will become one with the broth...
it should end up looking something like the first picture,
all the peas turn to mushy deliciousness,
and not be hard AT ALL.
season to taste,
