Fresh Green Peas Soup

Fresh_Green_Peas_Soup_1 Fresh Green Peas is a winter special vegetable and is a choice for all including children. It tastes little sweet when it is fresh. Green Peas can be cooked as combo or solo like soups, curries, stir fries, fried rice, or with vegetables. During winter, I always use fresh green peas and during off season I use frozen peas or dried peas. In my fridge I always keep stock of frozen peas for ready use.

Here I have prepared Green Peas Soup using fresh peas. With the given quantity of ingredients, 7 to 8 cups of soup can be prepared. It is creamy and little bit sweet. Green Peas is known as “Mutter” in Hindi and as “Pachai Pattani” in Tamil.

Cooking time: 20 minutes approximately

Tips

  • Adding little sugar helps to keep the original green colour of the peas. You can try this for cooking greens also.
  • I never boil the soups too much. I remove it just before the boiling stage to keep the soup tasty and creamy.
  • Dry grind pepper just before adding in soup to give nice aroma to the soup.

    I always think that green peas are very underutilized and never seem to get the importance they deserve, this soup definitely rectifies that :-) The soup looks yum and creamy, thanks for sharing this with my Healthy Inspirations event !
