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 :)

Everyone (including the kids) loved this! My favorite part is the awesome color. Tripled the recipe and used vegan sour cream. Thanks for a quick dinner!

A perfect soup to make when you haven't been to the supermarket for a while... Healthy, flavorful and quick. I topped mine with some cooked turkey bacon for some smokiness and it was delicious and satisfying. Thank you.

Five ecstatic stars!! Very easy recipe, full of flavor and healthy ingredients. Loved that this was low fat, high protein while still being so yummy. I topped mine with greek yogurt, which was very good. Made exactly as directed - fed two of us tonight as a main dish. A must try!

I absolutely love pea soup, and this is probably the best pea soup I have ever tasted! Thank you so much for sharing such an awesome recipe! For me, the recipe made three very filling 1-cup servings. I used a 16 ounce bag of peas and followed another poster's idea of adding the extra peas at the end. I did not blend the soup in a food processor; rather, I smashed the peas with a potato masher after they had cooked for awhile. The partially crushed peas in addition to the quinoa made the soup thick and hearty-just the way I like it!

This is so quick and easy for a nice weekend lunch! I was able to make this while feeding DS his lunch, which is no small feat. I used DS's rejected homemade babyfood cubes, so my soup came pre-pureed LOL! Make sure to use a flavorful stock, as most of the soup's flavor will come from it. I've been on a bit of a dill kick lately so I added a pinch--very yummy. Thanks for posting, ~Jen~!

This is a very good, easy to prepare soup. I had a 16 oz bag of frozen peas, so after preparing and blending as directed, I just added the rest of the peas for another layer of texture. Personally I do like the cool creaminess of the sour cream with the hot soup. Thank-you for sharing this recipe.

Really good soup! What I had left in my carton was a couple of ounces short for the broth, so I made it up with chardonnay, which worked very well! I tried this both with and without any meat, and liked it both ways. I topped it with a little uncured bacon bits, but I think low fat sausage would work really well too. Just make sure not to use too much, or it will overpower the delicate flavor of this soup. This is a great starting point for people who have never tried quinoa, since the peas and broth are most prominent in flavor. Thanks, Jen!
