    Julesong's Note:

    One Saturday afternoon I really wanted pea soup, but didn't have any in the cupboard and I didn't want to go to the store. So instead, I made my own. Oh-so-easy, this soup is yummy!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook frozen peas in a saucepan with water; cover and cook until peas are very tender (but not overly wrinkly).
    2. 2
      Then drain and whir the peas in the blender or food processor until soup-like in texture, adding the chicken stock as necessary (you want a nice thick soup).
    3. 3
      Take whirred peas from blender and put back into the saucepan, adding the pinch sugar, nutmeg, and salt/pepper.
    4. 4
      Heat through.
    5. 5
      Swirl a little sour cream into each serving, and this dish looks and tastes great!
    6. 6
      Makes 3 to 4 servings.
    7. 7
      You can add a little bit of minced onion in, if you like, and a few sliced mushrooms are good, too.

      Delicious, and so incredibly easy! The key to it being mildly sweet is in not overcooking the peas, like you directed. I omitted the nutmeg, which I was out of, and peppered this nicely instead. I used the water that the peas had cooked in to preserve nutrients, and added a tad extra water as well. My soup wasn't cloggy thick, but just right :-) Thanks for this one... it's one easy fix!

      My first time at making a pea soup and I love that this uses frozen peas instead of split peas. I sauteed a little onion in some bacon drippings and added to the pureed peas. Then, I thinned the puree with half and half instead of using the sour cream. I left out the sugar and topped the soup with just a sprinkle of bacon bits. Very tasty soup - nutritious and healthy comfort food!

      nice and very easy! i used an electric mixer instead of a blender, and it didn't get the perfect creamy texture, but still turned out great. took the suggestions for s and garlic, and worked very well.
