Green Pea Soup Recipe:

Green Pea Soup:

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons fresh ginger, well chopped

10 sm-med cloves garlic,

smashed and peeled

2 serrano chiles, stemmed and chopped


1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, plus more to serve


3 tablespoons ghee or sunflower oil


2 bay leaves

1 medium onion, chopped


4 1/2 cups good-tasting vegetable stock or water


3 1/2 cups / 500 g / 18 oz shelled fresh or frozen peas


1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

a squeeze of fresh lemon juice


8 fresh mint leaves, slivered

Steps:

           Use a food processor or hand blender {in a deep bowl) to puree the ginger, garlic, chiles, cumin and three tablespoons of water into a paste. You could also use a mortar and pestle. Set aside.

       Place a large saucepan over medium-high heat and add the ghee. When hot, add the bay leaves and saute for 30 seconds. Stir in the onion and cook for a few minutes, until it begins to take on a bit of color. At this point, stir in the garlic-ginger paste, and cook for another minute. Carefully add the stock, stir well, and bring to a boil. Then add the peas. Simmer just until the peas are bright, and cooked through – just a couple minutes.

        Remove from heat, fish out the bay leaves, add the salt, and puree well with a hand blender. Taste, and add more salt if needed. Also, if you need to thin out the soup at all, you can add more stock at this point. Serve hot topped with a bit of lemon juice, a pinch of cumin, mint leaves, and pan-fried paneer or cheese.

Serves 4 – 6. Prep time: 7 min – Cook time: 10 min

About bikingsibs3

I'm a high school Senior at Saint Joseph. I run cross-country, play soccer, and race bikes. I love to bake and cook with my mom, mostly so that I will be able to survive on my own in college. This past Summer I biked to North Carolina with my two brothers. It was over 1,100 miles! I'm a twin, and the youngest of four. I want to be an Early Education teacher when I go to college, mostly teaching kindergarten. I hope that you enjoy my blog! (Any food recipe not stated was either from my Foods teacher, Mrs. Berry, a student of hers, from my own home, or as I hate to say it a mix/bag/box.) There are pages up top of this bio page and then there are also separate categories with actual recipes down below to the side (under the Archives). Please explore to your hearts desire!
