Most soups require a whole lot of vegetable peeling and chopping, but with the exception of chopping up an onion, there’s nothing else to prepare for this Green Pea Soup. Add stock to the fried onion, garlic, a dash of cumin, throw in frozen peas, puree and you’re done…..couldn’t be easier.
I love soup, especially if it is quick and easy to make like this one. This is a really flexible recipe because, as suggested, you can change the vegetables and I don’t see why you couldn’t change the cheese type as well. Using sourdough or a seeded bread could add to the flavour too. Lots of choices really, whatever you like………….
Seems like winter is approaching fast, especially with Melbourne temperatures dropping to around 12o this weekend, so it must be soup time. Probably my favourite time of the year, although to be honest I can enjoy a mug of soup nearly any time of the year. This recipe calls for minted frozen peas, but if they aren’t available, I sure you could add a bit of chopped fresh mint instead.
This chowder recipe is a bit more economical than most. Using a prepared marinara mix, instead of other individual and more expensive fish, cuts the cost and also the time preparing it. Personally I’m not sure about adding cheese, could be worth trying, but I don’t see why you couldn’t leave it out either.
