Mushroom Guiness Pea Soup Recipe

5 stars from 1 rating of Mushroom Guinness Pea Soup

Green Pea Soup

Pea soup is probably my favorite meal ever. Its funny, because I went my entire life not knowing something I love so much existed. A few years ago, my father-in-law was making it and I thought it smelled pretty good. He explained that pea soup is one of those things you either love or hate, and that the night wouldn't end without me trying it. I fell in love instantly, and pea soup and I have been inseparable ever since.

It wasn't until just this Winter that I discovered how great it tastes with one of my favorite beers in it.. What a dangerously amazing discovery that was.

      I love Guinness, but haven't got around to cooking with it yet. Sounds like a wonderful recipe.
