Green Pea Soup is a flavoursome soup to enjoy during winter season. Addition of a few mint leaves gives a good taste to it.

Winter is here and calls for warm drinks and fried snacks. The vendor lady brings a stack of peas everyday, I love these green beauties but how much can one store!  Well, I made this soup and it was perfect for the cold nights.

There is hardly any chopping involved,  and peas are  usually shelled and put in the freezer.

The quantity given here produces more than six bowls of the drink. Feel free to reduce the quantity or you can store it in the refrigerator and use the next day.

Green Pea Soup Recipe

  • 2 cup green peas          1 cup= 200 ml
  • 20 mint leaf
  • 1 onion
  • 2 teaspoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper powder

Take a tip:

  • Stock can be prepared ahead and stored. Usually vegetables are put in it. But I have used  the gratings that remain and are to be thrown. Put gratings of cucumber, a few stalks of coriander, clean peel of any vegetable, a few onion pieces in a litre of water and boil for sometime. Later, strain it and use the water as stock. Remember, to wash the gratings before using them.
  • Addition of mint gives a good taste to it.

    I’ve yet to try making pea soup at home. I’ve only tasted it once and liked it. However, surprisingly have not thought of making it at home. Your recipe is tempting me to make it soon.
