Description

An easy, frugal, nutrition-packed soup made with split peas, fresh peas and mint!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 green onions,, chopped
  • 3/4 cup dried green split peas, rinsed and drained
  • 6 cups water
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 cups frozen green peas (no need to thaw)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan or pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add green onions and cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until softened.
  2. Stir in split peas and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, leaving lid ajar, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 45 to 50 minutes or until split are falling apart.
  3. Add the salt, pepper and frozen peas; simmer 10 minutes longer.
  4. Add the mint to the pan; using an immersion blend, puree soup until relatively smooth. Serve!

Notes

Storage Tip: Store the cooled soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator or in the microwave using the Defrost function. Warm soup in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.
