Green pea soup

May 16th, 2008 @ 19:31

It’s spring! I love it, every minute of extra sunshine, all the flowers, the green trees.. it’s amazing. Last week we had some crazy weather with summer temperatures and not a cloud in sight. It’s been cooler for a while now but definitely lovely. The day we had this soup I had to put my jacket on when I went to work, it was sunny but the winds were cold. I knew I wanted something warming but preferably not the thick and hearty soups of winter. So green pea soup it was. Green peas are not my favourite vegetables. I dislike them immensely and would not voluntarily have them with my dinner. Except for one exception.. they’re delicious with wasabi.

Green pea soup

With a swirl of horseradish-wasabi yoghurt and a toasted bagel with cream cheese on the side this was satisfying but light.

Green pea soup: Serves 4

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 5 dl (2 cups) vegetable stock
  • 700g (1.5 lbs) frozen green peas
  • 150 ml (0.5 cup + 2 tbsp) soy milk
  • black pepper to taste
  • 150 ml (0.5 cup + 2 tbsp) yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp minced horseradish
  • 0,5 tsp wasabi

Chop the onion finely. In a medium size soup pot sauté the onion over medium heat until translucent and soft. Add in the vegetable stock and the peas and let boil for about 7 mins. With a stick blender or in a food processor blend the soup and add in the milk. Season to taste with black pepper and reheat.

Mix the yoghurt with the horseradish and wasabi. Serve the soup with a yoghurt swirl and some nice bread.

And a link to my recipe for wasabi pea pureé. The only other tolerable way to eat peas.

  5. I love peas- I admit it! And your soup is all kinds of gorgeous. If I could marry that color green, I would!
