Green Pea, Spinach and Microgreens Soup

One of the easiest soups on the planet has to be green pea soup, an elegant start to any meal. I love making it cause its delicious and so easy, especially when you’re using frozen or canned peas when the produce section is looking bleak.

Since this recipe only has a few ingredients it came together really quickly and you can add different add ins to switch up every serving. As pictured here, my star of the day was the Pea Microgreens I added. Other times I might add a a bit of yogurt and pine nuts. Leftover ham  or roasted chicken would also be great additions.

  • 15 ml Olive Oil
