Healthy, Quick And Easy Pea Soup Recipe :)

Healthy Recipe

 

The first time I tried the recipe for this soup, I got so addicted to it that I started to make it every day and sometimes several times a day. I now buy frozen peas in bulk at the whole sale store just so I can make my favorite soup. I do that with everything I love, if you like something why not eat it every day right. I love this recipe because it only requires 5 minutes of your time, few ingredients, it’s healthy and delicious. My husband has been making fun of me when I make this soup cause he is not a big lover of healthy eating, only on occasions.

Here is how I make my favorite soup.

The ingredients

  • 3 cups of frozen organic sweet peas
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk – half a cup or a full cup depending on the thickness preference ( you can add regular milk, or cream that’s what the original recipe called for, but since I don’t recommend anyone drinking dairy, I just use unsweetened almond milk )
  • Sea Salt – to taste

You can also add your own choice of protein – I always have either pre cooked chicken breast or turkey, and I added to the side with my soup.

 

Preparation

Place the peas into the boiling pan and add the Almond Milk. Brink it almost to boil, but not all the way.

Now pour it out into the blender and blend it well for 20 seconds.

Take it out of the blender and put it back into the boiling pan. Place it on medium heat and add salt to taste, you can also add other spices if you like but I prefer it plain.

Within a minute it’s ready :).

If you like you can also add a few eggs to the blending process, just so you can have more protein. I do that when I don’t have any chicken or turkey.

Let me know how you like it, I shared this recipe with my grandma the other day and she loved it very much as well :).

    Hi Beth, 

    It’s really nice to meet you :).  Green pea is considered a vegetable, it is definitely not starch.

    • ? BodyRocker ? Beth ?

      Oooohhh Yeah ??? :D if so – that means it shouldn’t be “earning” or “limiting” peas like we do for potatoes/yams/rice etc right ??? :D

      OMG I’ve just been reading some of the articles, what a GREAT EXCITING SITE !!!
      I gotta soread the word !!! haha :D <3 IT !!!

      • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

        Beth thank you so much :), yes there is no need in limiting your peas, you can eat other food like potatoes, yams and brown rice as well, as long as you eat your raw veggies. By the way have you tried Buckwheat?  It’s super delicious and has tons of nutrients. A very great carb :).

        • ? BodyRocker ? Beth ?

          Haha :D yeah I did ! I love Buckwheat as well as Oatmeal, brown & wild rice (which is actually a type of GRASS, BTW) I try to eat those starchy carbs only after my WOs (usually w/ my dinner which is the post-WO meal) b/c Im followoing Zuzana’s new diet plan (

            That’s a good plan Beth, you definitely have to also listen to your body and adjust things to your own body needs.

          • ? BodyRocker ? Beth ?

            Your’e defientely right !!! BTW, does 3 cups of peas as mentioned above makes 1 serving / meal ? thanks !

          • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

            It depends on how much you eat, I would say it’s 2 servings.  I just love that soup, I love it for it’s simplicity and delicious goodness :).

          • ? BodyRocker ? Beth ?

            I like all of your recipes thanks to their SIMPLICITY which is IMO the most important thing to consider when coming up with a new recipe, especially for the begginers in the healthy eating which literally “CRAVE” simplicity in their diet ! ;D at least that’s how I remember myself when I first started & Im still looking for simplicity in all areas of life :)

          • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

            I am all about simplicity, I don’t like cooking for too long either, I just want things done fast but be nutritious as well.

            Absolutely 100% agree with you!

    This look delicious – now I must get peas! Do you mind if I ask why you don’t recommend anyone drinking dairy? And what are your thoughts on unsweetened coconut milk?

    • http://www.lovingfit.com Tatianna

      I absolutely love love love this soup, the simplicity of it is just amazing and I can eat this several times a day.  I don’t recommend dairy because I’ve done a lot of research on dairy and I found out that not only dairy causes us to gain weight because our bodies can’t digest it ( except for goat products because they are different from cow’s products), but dairy also feeds the cancer cells.  There is so much misinformation on TV about dairy and they promote it because of the economy.  I’ve read a lot of different cases where people got rid of cancer just by cutting out all the dairy.  Also if you stop eating for several weeks and then try eating it again, you will feel how your body rejects it, you will feel bloated and get cramps. 

      I’ve heard that organic raw milk is different but I would have to do more research on it, but unless you are living on a farm and raising your own happy cows then it’s pretty hard to find.  

      Unsweetened coconut milk is great if you can taste it, I’ve tried several different brands but I couldn’t ever taste it, it always tasted like water to me.

    I made this soup tonight. I followed your recipe but I added some Hot Madras Curry powder to the mix and it was delicious! I bet it would taste really good w/ other spices…or some fresh herbs from the garden…now I’m hungry again ;) I used my immersion (stick) blender for this which made it even easier to make. If you don’t have one its def worth it, it simplifies things a lot in the kitchen. Thanks for the simple recipe.

      Hi Samantha, 

      I so need a new blender!  I am glad you liked that recipe, I love to make simple and fast things.  This is one of my favorites :)

    This totally reminds me of another quick pea recipe I found online that is DELICIOUS! It’s meant to be a side dish, though — kind of like a substitute for mashed potatoes. All you do is saute a medium onion (chopped) in a few tablespoons of vegetable stock over medium heat until soft, then add a package of frozen peas (300g) with a little more stock and cover everything. You’ll not want to add TOO much stock, because everything’s going to be blended in the end, and what you want to get is a fairly thick paste. So when the peas are done, take your pan off the heat and put the mixture into a blender, and then throw in two handfuls of whatever fresh herb you fancy (I’ve used basil alone a couple of times, and have heard that mint is also really good) and two handfuls of sunflower seeds. Then hit “puree” and enjoy the magic that results :-)

    I’m so gonna keep this soup recipe in mind, though! Quick and easy like this make me SO happy, and I always have these ingredients in my kitchen.
