Green Pea Soup

Ever have those days when you feel like you’re not getting enough greens?

Then I have the perfect solution for you…green pea soup!

You can’t get much greener than this soup and it also tastes delicious 🙂

Given that the weather has changed and it is getting colder, I am opting for more ‘warming’ snacks and soups are one of my favourites.  Any time I can get more vegetables in is a good thing as they are so nutritious and hardly contain any calories –truly nature’s wonder-foods.

I prefer this soup with chicken stock, but for those vegies amongst us, vegetable stock is also good. 

It is amazingly quick and simple to make – and a great tummy filler/warmer…

Green Pea Soup

Serves 4 as a snack

  • 1 tspn olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 380g frozen peas
  • 500ml vegetable or chicken stock

Sautee onion in olive oil until lightly browned. If the onion starts to stick, add a little water.

Add peas and stock and bring to boil.

Cook for 6-8 minutes. Puree until smooth.

Each tummy and soul warming serve has exactly 100 calories and 6g of fibre!! Fabulous!
