European Union dairy farmers protest milk price controls by spraying police with high-pressure hoses filled with milk. It certainly wasn't the first time that food has been both subject and symbol of unrest. But this one stands out because of the dramatic images.
Ever wondered what they ate in Europe before the potato? Pease porridge was one of the staples of the diet. Who doesn’t love a good pea soup with ham hock or sausage? Ever thought that mushy peas might make a fantastic pizza sauce? It does. We had a little pea soup left over from dinner last night so I thought I’d give it a shot. My pea soup was made with beef broth and lots of ginger, onions and garlic, and made a lovely bright green flavorful sauce.
This recipe also makes a great gluten and grain free thin crust pizza using almond flour, the recipe for the crust is from a fantastic cookbook I have just gotten: Recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet by Raman Prasad.
- 2 t olive oil
- 2 c (220g) almond flour
