Green Pea Soup – Why I Love The Main Ingredient

 

Green peas are very high on my list of favourite vegetables, and I like them for many reasons. I like their slightly sweet taste that goes well with many other ingredients. Their beautiful green colour brightens all dishes peas are added to.

I also like them for their versatility. You can add them to a whole variety of meals: salads, soups, stews. Together with a boiled egg and a bit of mayo, they make an excellent and speedy snack. Or you can serve them as a side dish for a roast or any other meat or fish dish.

Another significant advantage of green peas is that (unless you buy them in pods), you almost don’t have to prepare them before using them.

No peeling, cutting or slicing is required, you only have to cook them. This feature makes them a very useful ingredient especially if you lack time.

 

Green Pea Soup – Simply Healthy and Yummy

A list of health benefits of green peas is equally impressive.

They contain phytonutrients that lower the risk of stomach cancer as well as provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Green peas are also a very good source of manganese, Vitamins K and B1.

But it is the excellent protein and fibre content that is crucial. It regulates the rate of food digestion and keeps our blood sugar on a steady level which reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes.

I hope I have convinced you that – along with other legumes (lentils, chickpeas, beans, etc.) – we should eat more green peas (at least 3 cups of legumes per week).

So why not start with this Green Pea Soup? It is healthy and delicious, filling but not too heavy.

You need only storecupboard ingredients and 30 minutes to cook it. So this Green Pea Soup can be your saviour when you quickly have to make something for your hungry family.
