Chilled Green Pea Soup
I’m excited to share this amazing chilled green pea soup recipe with you! But before I do, I want you to pause for a moment. Think spring with mountains of wildflowers and bright blue skies because this soup has the brightest flavor! Super healthy with fresh vegetables given a quick sauté and amazing herbs and spices. If this Chilled Green Pea Soup doesn’t scream spring, then I don’t know what does!
Ok, here’s what we’re going to do – start by shelling two pounds of fresh peas…kidding! I specialize in quick healthy meals! So let’s start over – we are going to use frozen peas but shhh…. no one needs to know! 😀
Believe it or not, this beautiful soup only takes 15 minutes to make and it’s served chilled, though you could just as easily warm it up.
This would be perfect for a lovely Mother’s Day Brunch, Bridal or Baby Shower, Tea or Birthday party. Simple and delicious it uses just a handful of ingredients! Let me show you how easy this is!
How To Make Chilled Green Pea Soup!
Chop an onion and sauté it with minced thyme for about five minutes. Add minced garlic and sauté for another minute or so. Next add this mixture to the blender. Add one 10 oz. package of frozen peas and two cups of stock (I used chicken, but you can just as easily use vegetable stock and it would be vegan). Blend until smooth and chill – it’s that easy!
It can be made ahead also and will store for up to two days in the refrigerator. Just give it another whirl in the blender before serving.
