Mushroom Guiness Pea Soup Recipe
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.

- a few stalks of celery

Recipes with Guinness
- First I started by putting the split peas in my large crock pot on high.
- Then I poured Guinness over the peas, and added my four cans of water.
- Next I cut the onions and celery and added those.
- Then I added salt, pepper and basil.
- Next I added the chopped mushrooms.
- Then I let it go, I stirred it every once in a while and once the peas really started getting soft, I lowered the heat and let it simmer for a while.
