One of the easiest soups on the planet has to be green pea soup. I love making it cause its delicious and so easy, especially when you’re using frozen peas. Since this recipe only has a few ingredients it came together really quickly and you can add different add ins to switch up every serving. As pictured here, I added a bit of yogurt and pine nuts. Other times I might add a bit of crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese. Leftover ham, turkey  or roasted chicken would also be great additions.


A great basic recipe and the flavor is great. Just make sure you season your soup with salt and pepper and if you like it spicy, you could also add in a pinch of cayenne pepper.
