Surprisingly delicious and rich in a number of health-enhancing nutrients, green pea soup is a solid choice for any health-conscious budget. This soup will provide you with plenty of natural vitamin C, healthy omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, healthy carbohydrates, and a few unique phytonutrients that provide anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. - Ben Kim

This is a truly delicious soup. If you have any leftovers, I recommend trying it the next day cold from the frig. It's a great cold soup on a hot day!

Outstanding!

I really love my pea soup but I make it with split peas. Also have a soup bone in it for starters. The last half hour of simmering I add leeks and celeriac. I bet my soup tastes better!!

That's perfect for our new Vitamix, thanks for putting this up for us to cook, think I'll make it tonight as we are snowed in and it looks warm and soothing

I have made this super easy, super tasty soup! It's great! Thanks for sharing!
