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.

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.

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!!
