Tasty Tuesday - Pea Soup

Posted by Claudia Moser on 5:48 AM in ,
One of the dishes which is always succesful, so easy to prepare but so delicious.

The version below was inspired by some fresh dill which was simply attracting my taste buds.

400 gr frozen peas
1 big leak
a bit of olive oil
a pinch of salt
400 ml chicken stock
a bunch of fresh dill

Chop the leak and add it in the oil followed shortly by the peas. Add the stock and boil them together for 20 minutes. In the end add the salt, pepper and the dill. The use the mixer and create the cream. I added some grilled shrimps and a bit of cream. Et voila! Enjoy!



Your soup looks oh so delicious, Claudia.

I grew up on my mom's wonderful Pea Soup recipe and she still makes it to this day!


Cheers, Jenny


Shrimp in pea soup? Sounds delicious! I make soup every Sunday during the winter and pea soup makes several appearances!

Hi Claudia

I have never tasted pea soup but your recipe sounds really easy to do. I like the sound of adding the leeks.

I could do with a bowl of it now as it is dull damp and miserable here in Ireland.

Pea soup something that I must try
pea and shrimp soup something that I will definitely try!!!!

It really does look delicious, Claudia, and adding the shrimps just added that finishing touch. You're really into your cooking at the moment, aren't you?

@Jenny - thank you, it is by far my favourite cream soup!
@Laura - good, it is indeed delicious!
@Fiona - bad weather? I am so sorry, I am surprised with the Estonian weather, pretty mild but so DARK!
@Diane - yes, I am turning into a chef :)))

Yum! I hadn't had Pea soup in forever! thanks for sharing!

@Bibi - I make it at least once per month!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
