Easy peasy green pea soup with a hint of mint

Hello Darlings!

It’s been cold and snowy where I live, so I am still having my creamy soup phase. How today’s lunch idea started was I had some leftover mint leaves that I wanted to use (zero waste, baby), then I remembered that I also had some frozen green peas, so I decided to make this beautiful green soup.

It’s a very easy dish that you can prepare in 15 minutes or less, so perfect for those days when you are busy or just can’t be bothered.

Now let’s see the ingredients!

  • 1 medium-sized onion
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil or water
  • 3 cups of vegetable broth (I used Rapunzel cubes)
  • 400 grams of frozen or canned green peas
  • A handful of fresh parsley chopped (~15 gr)
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves chopped (~15 gr)
  • A pinch of white pepper
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt to taste
  • Topping of your choice (I used mushrooms today)

Instructions:

  • Finely slice and sautee onion in a little olive oil or water until it becomes soft (5-10 minutes).
  • Add 3 cups of vegetable broth to the onion and bring to boil.
  • Add the frozen green peas, reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes until peas get warm.
  • Add the finely chopped parsley, mint, pepper, nutmeg and optionally salt.
  • Remove from heat and blend till everything is smooth.

Topping:

I added some sauteed mushrooms on top for an additional vitamin D boost, which we all need in these dark days.
Note: not every type of mushroom is rich in vitamin D, check the packaging.

Yumm! 😊
