Green Pea & Avocado Soup

IMG_1791What made me want to make this? I have no idea. I did just get a nutribullet, and wanted to try out my blending abilities haha. I wanted to find a nice fresh soup for summer. And the best thing about this recipe? It can be served hot OR cold! So you don’t have to worry about a hot soup in the summer! I always like hot soup so I might be an anomaly.

What you’ll need:

2 cups fresh or frozen peas

1 avocado

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

2 1/2 cups vegetable sauce.

1/8 cup chopped poblano peppers

1/2 tbsp olive oil

salt

pepper

(optional: hot sauce, and lime. see instructions below)

Heat olive oil in a pot or saucepan. Add the garlic and onion. cook for a few minutes until onions are translucent, or slightly caramelized depending on your preference. Add in the vegetable stock. Bring to a boil. Add the peas. Cook for about three minutes. Don’t cook for too long or the peas will lose their vibrant green color. Remove from heat. Add the avocado. And add salt and pepper to taste. I added a few drops of a Habanero hot sauce to add some heat (completely optional… and i know it’s shocking I added hot sauce to something. Also consider squeezing half a lime in to add some brightness. do a taste trial and figure out what works for you.)

Blend the mixture… and you’re done. If your blender isn’t strong enough, and you’d like the soup to be smoother, run through a strainer or some cheesecloth.

Remember this can be served hot OR cold.IMG_1792

For a full top with a great seafood. I suggest a shrimp or white fish topped with a Cajun seasoning. In the picture I used a red snapper. Also topped with a corn salad and goat cheese. yum!
