INGREDIENTS IN A GREEN PEA SOUP RECIPE
- Olive oil: Any other cooking oil will work.
- Onion: For flavor.
- Carrot: Peeled and chopped or diced.
- Vegetable stock cube: For flavor. If you'll like to substitute, use the same amount of vegetable broth as water and omit the water from the recipe.
- Green peas: I used frozen peas. Frozen peas are often flash-steamed before they´re frozen. If using peas that are not flash-steamed, cooking time will be a bit longer.
- Smoked paprika powder: You can use sweet paprika powder to substitute.
- Flour: To thicken the soup. You can use cornstarch to make this soup gluten-free.
- Hot water: For the desired consistency.
- Salt and black pepper: To taste. Taste and add more salt and/or black pepper to your personal preference.
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RECIPE PERFECTLY
- Use frozen peas as they are flash-steamed before they're being frozen. Canned peas can result in a mashy soup.
- Mix one tablespoon of flour with some water before adding it to the soup. Adding flour directly to the soup will result in a lumpy soup, with flour lumps.
