Creamy Sweet Pea Soup

Earlier last week, Mosaica pointed me to a pea soup recipe that immediately caught my attention.Super simple and totally delish!Here you go...

Creamy Sweet Pea Soup

Adapted from a recipe posted by Kelly here

Serves 4-5

3 cups sweet peas, thawed
1 avocado
2 cups cucumbers
2 cups celery
1/4 cup fresh dill
1/4 cup cashews, ground (optional)
2 cloves of garlic
1 green onion
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tsp miso
Water until desired consistency is reached
Salt, to taste

Blend until smooth.

If desired, serve with fresh chopped parsley and extra peas.

Just my kind of soup!
But are frozen peas raw or blanched? I heard that some frozen corn is blanched, and some is raw, but I'm not sure about peas.

I believe that all frozen peas are blanched first.

i think ditto with most corn - you can kindof tell...i am going to try and freeze a lot of my own corn and peas this year!

i want to try this, but am not a big fan of avocado in my soup...up the cashews? i will give it a try and let you know how it goes. this sounds scrumptious.

Ani,

Please do let us know how it turns out with cashews only! It has become a staple in our house.

This sounds really nice. Very summery with the cukes in it. I'm printing it out. It might be nice to take with me this weekend.

reeeeally yummy - it worked fine without the avo. i didn't even up the cashews that much. it was super-creamy. kids even liked it. totally VIBRANT green. initial reaction of some was that it looked like weird baby food, but all agreed it was good. i drizzled olive oil on top and liberally ground fresh pepper.

i have REAL fresh peas in my fridge, just debating if i should sinfully blend the perfect things...i am sure this would be AMAZING with real fresh peas, but...i don't know that i have the heart!

Glad you've been enjoying this soup as much as we do!

Oh, I bet the fresh pea version would be divine!

I still have to submit a recipe for GLiving and I'd like it to be a soup. I'm debating which of my many soup creations to go with. Think this one would be a good candidate?

Other options would be:

Creamy Zucchini and Lovage Soup

or

Popeye Gone Raw Cream of Spinach Soup

(My Just Like Campbell's Soup is already in.)

Soup lovers, what do you think?

Yes, this soup was a hit with my parents, even my SAD eating super picky mother really liked it. It was amazing.

I left my camera at home, so I can't upload my picture, but I didn't bother with too many cashews. And I was sadly out of celery so I threw in a bunch of parsley instead. I also threw some whole peas and fresh corn in it for texture.

I noticed many SAD eaters don't like "bisque" soups. Even in conversation I have heard this mentioned a lot. So I try to add bits and peices to my soups when serving SAD.

Thanks for your feedback, Pirawna.

Last time we made it, we threw in some whole peas as well in the bowl - something we don't always do- and it seemed to taste even better than usual.

Once I forgot to add the cashews and noticed the soup was still delicious, so I don't bother anymore. I also started to throw in a handful of fresh parsley in the blender rather than adding it at the end.

i love the spinach soup. i think you kind of have to be a green lover to love green soups, though. the tomato soup is fab...hard decision. i have been trying lots of the recipes from the e-books ( )...i will have a look through and see what i loved...that coconut soup? THAT might be good for the dinner you are doing (can be made a head of time!) i'll go over and post that there...
