Preparation:

  • Peel the onion, garlic and carrots and cut into medium-sized pieces. Cut the celery and parsley. Fry in a little oil or butter until vegetables are slightly golden.
  • Add peas, white wine, 6-5 glasses of water. Bunch of cilantro or parsley on a string, bay leaf and black pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and cook over medium heat for about an hour, until the peas soften.
