Low Fat Pea Soup With Quinoa

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by FLKeysJen

Low in fat and high in fiber! We added some diced ham leftover from Easter but even without it this has lots of protein and is quite filling for 2-3 people. Originally from Light & Tasty.

Delicious! The best pea soup I have had in a LONG time! The quinoa gives it a great texture. I have already shared this recipe :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small saucepan, bring water and quinoa to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for approximately 12 minutes or until water is absorbed.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Stir in broth and peas. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for five minutes or until peas are tender.
  3. In a blender or food processor, puree soup until smooth. If you are doubling the recipe, you may need to do this in batches.
  4. Return all to the pan. Stir in the salt, pepper and quinoa (and diced ham if adding); heat through.
  5. Garnish each serving with 1 teaspoon yogurt or sour cream if desired.
  6. For Vegetarian use the vegetable broth and for vegan omit the yogurt/sour cream.
