Step by step photos of pea soup
Some varieties of dried peas boiled softfast enough and it does not even need to pre-soaked in cold water. However, if you do not know what grade you got, the better it will all soak in cold water for several hours. Before you leave the peas to swell in water, it must be very well washed - wash your rump up until the water is clear. This point is very important in the preparation of the main ingredient because it helps not only to wash, dry corn is not fit and debris, but also helps to keep all the nutrients. Soaked peas retain all its useful properties, even during cooking.
We reserve the peas in cold water, and in the meantime prepare the vegetables and meat.
Chicken leg very carefully cut from all sides - cut off all the flesh and cut into small pieces.
Potatoes need a good wash, peel and cut into medium-sized cubes - about 2x2 cm.
Potatoes fill with cold water to wash the excess starch.

When the water comes to a boil in a saucepan, remove the foam, reduce heat and add the potatoes. Cook the soup over medium heat.
