Pea Mint Soup

This pea mint soup is a family favorite. This is my mother’s recipe. She made it for me my entire childhood. I loved it, and all of our friends loved it, too.

Soup is the ultimate comfort food, and this simple pea mint soup is really easy to throw together in less than 20 minutes, and is cheap!

The classic combo of mint and peas rocks the pot, and this pea mint soup is amazing served hot or cold.  Serve this soup is a simple starter, a main dish with a grain ball or crusty bread, or in shot glasses cold as an appetizer.

Jazz this soup up by serving with a splash of fresh lemon juice, a dollop of vegan sour cream, and a sprinkle of chopped flat-leaf parsley.

Low in fat and carbs, high in fiber, flavor, nutrients, and alkalizing power, however you serve this soup, it is dressed to impress!

I shared this pea mint soup with lettuce in my last cookbook, The Perfect Blend cookbook, and it’s become one of the favorites from that book.

  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat and sauté the onions with a pinch of salt for about 5 minutes, until soft and translucent. Add the cauliflower and broth, raise the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the cauliflower is just cooked through. Add the lettuce, peas, and remaining salt, and simmer for about 2 minutes, until just cooked but still vibrant green. Remove the pot from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Add the mint.
  2. Pour the soup into your blender in batches and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. (For conventional blenders, remove the small center lid cap and cover the opening with a kitchen towel so steam can escape while you blend.)

  3. Return the soup to the saucepan, season to taste, and warm it over low heat. Add the lemon juice, and season to taste.
  4. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of parsley, if desired.
