Chilled Green Pea Soup
Has summer hit where you live? We officially call it HOT here in the valley when the temperature is 90 degrees and above. Today has been a beautiful day 92 degrees and it’s HOT! It will be even warmer tomorrow – perfect timing for Chilled Green Pea Soup!
I’m excited to share this recipe with you because it is perfect for spring & summer! If you’re hosting a baby shower or lovely brunch – you can WOW your friends and family. I made this for my Mom on Mother’s Day. It is so bright and flavorful!
Or if it’s too hot to cook (like it will be here….)? This soup is a light delicious lunch! Add a sandwich – you’ve got a meal that doesn’t heat up the house and is incredibly fabulous
Before I share how easy this soup is to make, I want you to pause for a moment. Think spring with mountains of wildflowers and bright blue skies because this soup has the brightest flavor! Super healthy with fresh vegetables given a quick sauté and paired with amazing herbs and spices. If this Chilled Green Pea Soup doesn’t scream spring, then I don’t know what does!
Ok, are you ready? Let’s get started. You’ll need to shell two pounds of fresh peas… kidding! You know me! That would be waaayyy too much work! 😀
So let’s try this again. We are going to use frozen peas but shhh…. no one needs to know!
Believe it or not, this beautiful soup only takes 15 minutes to make and it’s served chilled, though you could just as easily warm it up.
This would be perfect for Brunch, Bridal or a Baby Shower, Tea or Birthday party. Simple and delicious it uses just a handful of ingredients! Let me show you how easy this is!
- Chop an onion and sauté it with minced thyme for about five minutes.
- Add minced garlic and sauté for another minute or so.
- Next add this mixture to the blender. Add one 10 oz. package of frozen peas and two cups of stock (I used chicken, but you can just as easily use vegetable stock and it would be vegan).
- Blend until smooth and chill – it’s that easy!
It can also be made ahead and will store for up to two days in the refrigerator. Just give it another whirl in the blender before serving.
Garnish with a drizzle of good olive oil and fresh chopped dill.
