Green Pea Soup ~ Raw Vegan

Green Pea Soup
serves 2 ~ $1.70 per serving


Peas are usually associates with the spring garden, but a second fall planting can produce lots of pods ... which is exactly what happened around here. Not all peas are created equal. There are "snap peas," which have edible pods, and "shell peas," which have inedible pods and the larger peas inside are the parts used. This recipe calls for shelled peas, which can be fresh or frozen. Frozen peas will work really well, though they may not be raw.

ingredients
  • 2 cups peas ($1.75)
  • 1 avocado ($1.49)
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk ($.70)
  • 1 small onion ($.15)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
directions
  • Set aside a half cup of the peas. 
  • In a blender, puree the rest of the peas, avocado, almond milk, and salt and pepper until very smooth.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour in bowls and top with the reserved peas and minced onion.

  7. Why do people who HAVE NOT MADE the recipe COMMENT?
    MAKE the recipe and then comment, otherwise, WHAT IS THE POINT?

  8. Did you use the peas right after shelling, or did you need to soak them first?

  9. I MADE THE SOUP, Anonymous. And it was great! Even my husband (who is no raw food enthusiast) enjoyed it, saying the green onions I chopped for the add-in MADE it! We will eat this again...and again...and again. :-)

  10. I made this too! Try substituting Veggie broth with Miso and Bragg's Amino acid for some of the liquid and salt. Yummy!
