[cooking w/ kotturinn] @inertia's favorite food :0

in food •  2 years ago 

Hey Steemit!

I decided to upgrade from my current way of creating food/cooking posts and instead of just sharing some recipes and pictures (even though I will still continue to do it) I am going to make people's favorite food, how does that sound?!
I am pretty excited about it and I think it is a great way to make these posts interesting to people on both Steemit and Golos (of course I will post the articles on Golos in Russian).

Either way, friends, today we are making @inertia's favorite dish which is Pea Soup! Even though I do not cook soups often, I like pea soup, it is a pretty good choice when it is cold outside and it it's both filling and tasty.

I will be also making garlic croutons to go with the soup, so let's begin :)

Ingredients for the soup:

  • 200 g smoked ham;
  • 100 g bacon;
  • 200-220 g split peas;
  • 1 carrot;
  • 1 onion;
  • 1 garlic clove;
  • 800 ml-1 liter chicken broth;
  • frying oil;
  • celery salt, bay leaf, black pepper to taste.


Heat the oil in a boiling pan or a dutch oven, add in chopped onion, carrot and garlic, saute the vegetables for about 10 minutes until they're soft. Add in cubed ham and bacon (reserve some bacon for serving, if you please), cook for additional 2 minutes. Now, add the split peas, chicken broth and the spices. Bring the soup to a boil, cover with a lid and simmer for about an hour or until the peas get soft.

Ingredients for the garlic croutons:

  • 2-3 slices of bread;
  • 50 ml olive oil;
  • 2 garlic cloves.


Preheat your oven to 350F or 180C. Cut the bread into cubes and place onto a baking sheet. Press garlic into a bowl, add the olive oil and stir, pour the mixture over the bread, toss well. Bake until the croutons turn golden brown, for about 15-20 minutes.

Looks like we are done, now that was easy, wasn't it? I encourage everyone to try making these croutons,

they are to die for, I promise!

Serve the pea soup with some fresh parsley, or any other type of herb to your liking, bacon and garlic croutons!

Note: if you guys wanna see me make anyone's favorite food, let me know in the comments, I am going to try doing that if I can get ahold of them and of course if the ingredients are available to me. Although I already have a few people in mind for the next posts. I plan on making a person's favorite dish post once a week. Maybe I should get a name for it?

Oh my. That looks so good!!

I ate it! Thanks!

Fish and chips, please :)

Is it your favorite dish?

Yes, but really anything fish.

Maybe tomorrow!

homeade croutons even lol! Went allll out!

I didn't have any store bought ones, actually I've never bought any, so it worked out!

That soup looks and sounds delicious. :) Yum. I may have to try your recipe.

Thank you! It tasted pretty good as well! Give it a try!

Wonderful idea @kotturinn! I think it's lovely to make personal favourites for people, what a friendly thing to do! Gorgeous food and photos as always :-)

Thank you @woman-onthe-wing! I meant to take part in fall special challenge last week, but only after I took the pictures I realized there are new rules with a piece of paper, I keep forgetting about it, I was so pissed!

Aw I'm sorry about that @kotturinn... I had to change it after some entries were being submitted with plagiarized photos. I hope you posted your recipe anyway did you?

It's alright, don't be sorry, rules are rules! It is sad that some people would want to cheat though. I actually haven't posted it yet, I probably will in the next couple days haha

Yes, if only honestly was important to everyone! Oh well! I'm glad the world still gets to see your recipe... and I look forward to seeing it too ;-)

Yeah, it is a pumpkin soup, actually a butternut squash soup, a friend of mine shared a recipe with me and it was my first time making it!

kotturinn your all recipes are always tasty and delicious, and its more better that you have started friend's favorite dishes ... I like croutons and it will be more tasty when we try it at home... What is Golo I didn't understand...Have a great time...

Indeed! I think it is a good idea too! I strongly encourage you try the croutons, they are delicious! I used to make them before, but I would use Italian herbs and olive oil, and they were okay, but garlic is truly where it's at! Golos is a Russian blockchain, like Steemit.

Wow! Mouthwatering. I'm drooling right now. Thank you so much for sharing.

You should make it, it is pretty straight forward and easy! Thanks :)

Oh damm that's the professional touch by one and only @kotturinn amazing it was :D

You're too nice! Thank you!

This is a very creative twist you have put on it!

Thanks! I think it will be fun!

These croutons are really to die for!And your pea soup looks extremely delicious!😍

Thank you @damira! I already told you husband, you guys should recreate it :)

I would love to but we don't have nice real bread here in China😔Maybe I should order some on Taobao;))

Hahaha that's crazy. Isn't there like a bakery?

There is a bakery of course,but even in a so-called French bakery there is still no real "black" bread that we have in CIS countries:(

Yeah, I know what you're talking about, there isn't real black bread here either, even though we have a similar kind it is called pumpernickel bread, but it is not the same, sadly.

I see. I can of course order it from Taobao, but it takes like 3-4 days and it's food, so I still don't really dare to do that😬

That's the best pea soup I've ever seen. Hands down you nailed it! Also this is an awesome idea to make people's favorite foods!

Thank you, the master of food preparation! Too bad I already bought regular smoked ham before finding out that people usually get the kind that's on the bone, oh well :(

I think this is a great idea to cook people's favorite dish! I guess @inertia wishes he could have some of that deliciousness!

It's getting cold here as well so a nice soup like this would be very good to eat !
Great post and awesome new concept

Thank you! I think it is a better way to introduce recipes too since I do a lot of those, hopefully people enjoy it!
I haven't made a lot of pea soup in the past and I was very surprised how good it turned out, you guys should try it :)

If I behave well I think I can convince my wife to make it. Keep up the good work !

I mean you gotta eat, right, so better be good!!! Thank you!

My pleasure:)

A pleasant post. @kotturinn followedd

Thank you!

fish please
love it

I love fish too, I might make something here in the nearest future :)
