Sugar Snap Peas Soup

Image

In Genghis grill, I had sugar snap peas for the first time. Genghis grill is a Mongolian Stir fry restaurant. I liked the flavor of Sugar snap peas, it was a bit sweeter than the regular peas. I bought some Sugar snap peas with the intention of doing Stir fry. But I got inspired by lot of green soup recipes and wanted to try a soup with Sugar snap peas. It turned out to be healthy and flavorful! I used avocado for the creaminess, thereby eliminating the need to use corn flour or other thickening agents.

  • Puree the cooked items in a blender. Peel and pit the avocado and add it to the peas mixture along with lemon juice and salt. Blend until smooth, adding more vegetable broth or water (I added Water). if the soup is too thick. Add seasoning to the soup. Taste and adjust seasonings/pepper if desired. Serve the soup, after garnishing with roasted bread

My Notes:

  • I have used the water in which the snap peas were cooked. Instead, vegetable broth can also be used
  • Since Avocado tends to oxidize, I have used lemon juice
  • Butter or cheese can be added to give richness to the soup
  • Avocado can be used with any soup for getting the creaminess in the soup
