six minute green pea soup

six minute green pea soup

This is the simplest of soups to make. Six minutes, that’s it. OK maybe seven or eight if you count the time it takes to boil water.

Fried garlic, frozen peas, water or stock, cook, blend.

It is yummy just as is, but go ahead and jazz it up however you please with extra garnishes.

I did this one with mint and a spoonful of Botanical Lemon and Dill cream cheese. Crunchy fried onions are also nice for a contrast, a drop or two of liquid smoke is good, A lemony, garlicky, parsley laden gremolata works well against the sweetness of the peas.

The point is it only takes 6 minutes to produce this beautiful green jewel of a soup.

As close to instant gratification as you can get!
