Fresh Pea Soup

An easy "fresh" pea soup using peas which have not been dried like regular split pea soup.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a hot saucepan, coat with oil and brown onions and then garlic, about 5 minutes.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the peas and cook until soft, about 5 to 8 minutes, check often. Do not overcook or they will darken.
  5. During the last minute, add the spinach.
  6. Immediately blend using a hand blender and when pureed, check for seasoning.
  7. Soup will be a bit thick which is fine but for better texture strain or use a food mill. This last step is optional.
  8. You can add a drizzle of basil oil to make this extra fancy. Serve with seared scallops for quick summer meal.

This is a delicious soup and so easy to make!
Made this today, on a cold, rainy day. So good. I even was able to share it with my 5 mo old,(strained it a bit). Since it was all fresh veggies it felt good to give her something I made instead of having to feed her from a jar. 5 stars!!

Try making this vegan by using vegetable broth and adding a few drops of Truffle oil. The funkiness of the truffle oil is just awesome. I made 2 versions of this soup - 1 with ham (4 star) and 1 with truffle oil (5 star) All of my guests preferred the one with truffle oil. (The little bit of oil does not add much in the way of calories.
