Green Pea Soup


This simple Green Pea Soup is so easy to throw together and perfect for a light lunch or as a starter. It uses just a few basic ingredients and tastes great, keeping you warm on a rainy day.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 onions, roughly chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 1 large potato, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast
  • 700 ml vegetable broth
  • 2 cups green peas, frozen
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a deep pan. Then add the onion and garlic, sautéing for about 5 minutes until translucent.
  2. Add the leek and potato and heat in the pan for 5 more minutes.
  3. Add the vegetable broth, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil and then simmer for about 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the soup from heat and add the peas.
  5. Pour the soup into a blender and blend until entirely smooth and creamy.
  6. Now you can reheat the soup and it’s ready to eat, or you can save it for later!

Notes

  • Serve this soup with my Vegan Sour Cream and my ‘Cheesy’ Tofu Croquettes (also coming soon).


 

I hope you enjoyed my recipe, it’s loosely based on a recipe from the book ‘NOPI’ by Yotam Ottolenghi & Ramael Scully. It’s a cookbook with lovely recipes and one I would highly recommend, I recently did a review of the book, check out the links below!
