When to lunch buffet the other day. Fancy restaurant. They served split pea soup with barely cooked inside. I have never heard of such thing. Am I wrong? By the time it was set out looked more like a porridge not soup.
The reason I mentioned this because split pea soup mentioned above.
I add pre cooked barley last minute as Im serving so it doesnt absorb al the liquid. Doesnt add much for flavor, but kinda gives ya that little surprise texture when you're least expecting it. Like a pleasant surprise. My wife also used to throw some cubed jarlsburg (sp) cheese in at the end, once again, for that little surprise . It was the kinda thing that didnt quite work, but in some bizarre way it kinda did too.
