With the temperature at -11 C / 12 F outside, and I wanted to make a tasty soup to warm me up after a long walk in the brisk winter wonderland we have here in Oslo right now.
And I have to say, I was pretty happy with the results. The acidity from the wine, the sweetness of the caramelized onions, the soft taste of the herbs, and the slow burn from the chili peppers made a rather nice harmony on the plate. If you happen to have some Parmesan cheese on the hand, it would be perfect on the top with the basil. And don't forget a nice fresh bread on the side.
Yes, the peas take a bit long to cook, but for me the end result was worth it.
I used crushed tomatoes that already had oregano and basil with it.
And I really recommend Parmesan cheese on the top, if you have it handy. This makes enough for 5-6 people.
Hope you enjoy it
