Cool weather calls for warm, comforting bowls of food, right? We particularly love eating comfort foods that are hearty yet light on the stomach and easy to prepare. Like this simple 6 ingredient creamy pea soup!
Creamy Pea Soup [Vegan]
- 3 1/3 cup Fresh or Frozen Peas
- 1 Onion, roughly chopped
- 4-5 Garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 teaspoon Dried oregano
- 15-20 Fresh mint leaves
- 1 tablespoon Extra virgin Olive oil
- 2 cups Water (You may need more)
Heat the oil in a medium size saucepan or pressure cooker.
Add the chopped garlic and onions, saute till translucent, about 3-4 minutes on medium heat.
Add the peas, dried oregano, mint leaves, salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add water, mix well and let it cook for 20-30 minutes, until the vegetables are softened and cooked through. If using a pressure cooker, let this cook for 2 whistles. Open the lid when the steam is completely released.
Allow the soup to cool a bit and then puree it till smooth. If the soup is too thick for you, add some more water to get the consistency you prefer.
Taste and adjust for seasoning. Garnish with some cream and nuts, serve hot. Enjoy!
