How to Make Healthy Pea Soup
Posted by Kristen on Dec 15, 2016
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
Ingredients you will need include:
8 cups frozen peas
5 cups vegetable or chicken broth
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons of organic butter (or olive oil for those who avoid dairy)
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Over medium heat, cook garlic in butter or olive oil for 2-3 minutes.
Add peas and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Add vegetable or chicken broth, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to allow ingredients to simmer for 5 minutes with the lid on.
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth and return to pot to heat through. Add sea salt and black pepper, to taste.
If available, garnish with a sprig of fresh mint. Enjoy this hearty pea soup. As with most soups, it goes well with a few slices of creamy avocado on the side.
