Split Pea, Lentil and Barley Soup is a soup dish made with peas, lentils, carrots and barley in a chicken stock base flavoured with fried bacon
Soup brings the sunny day on a cold winter night, it’s such a comforting meal when everything seems to be gloomy and dreary it just brings happiness and smile to everyone. I guess winter is just hard to survive without having a good soup at least once or twice a week.
Today is the last month for winter here in New Zealand it can be a good thing as spring season is next but a bit bad as winter soups try die down in replacement of spring dishes but before it goes away I will be making soups as much as I can so today we will be making something made with lentils, peas and barley. This soup is comparable to the Filipino mung bean soup, with the gritty thick texture and savoury taste from the bacon I guess the taste will be quite familiar to the Filipino palate. Like the mung bean soup, you can enjoy it on its own but if you are truly Filipino there is no stopping you to have it with rice and fried fish.
