Green Pea Soup

April 8, 2013 § 2 Comments

IMG_1675I love fresh green peas from the pod, but when spring still feels like winter… or any time I just want a good soup… this frozen green pea soup is a delicious and easy fix!

You can make up a big pot of this soup as quick as it takes you to open up a bag of (organic) frozen peas and chop-up a few potatoes and onions!

Yes, I do cook with frozen vegetables. I freeze my own vegetables, when they all seem to arrive at once from the garden, and I always keep a couple of frozen vegetable bags for days when time is limited… I totally understand how the idea of chopping and peeling can seem like enough of a reason to call for a pizza; resist the urge by keeping some frozen veggies in the freezer:)

Head-ups… make sure that there is nothing but veggies in those frozen bags, added colors and flavors sneak up in the most unlikely of places!

Green Pea Soup

Bag of Frozen green peas

3-4 medium potatoes

1 onion

Add peas to a soup pot, a big pinch of sea-salt and water to an inch above the peas. Turn the heat up under the pot while you peel and quarter the potatoes and onions. Add them to the pot. Once the water is boiling and all the ingredients are in the pot; simmer for 20 minutes.

Blend until smooth and creamy with an immersion blender. Serve with creme fraiche and chopped mint or basil.

Leave out the salt for some yummy baby-food!
