I love homemade soup don't you? What could be better than a homemade fresh soup. And this spring pea soup is the counterpart of the Granny rich split pea soup that I have been making for years. A delicious starter for spring if you want to eat something light.
In just 5 minutes you can heat your soup on the stove to simmer and let the flavors blend together. A delicious soup for Mother's Day, Easter or an elegant dinners for sure.
💭 Top tips
- Sieve this soup because it becomes clear and light. Sieving is not absolutely necessary, but I like it a lot better this way.
- If you make your own chicken stock, make sure to flavor it with salt and pepper. When you use store-bought stock, most of the times, that isn't really necessary.
- Pour the cream into the bowls and not into the pan. It can curdle when you do the latter. Besides that you can store this soup only without the addition of cream. That way this soup keeps well in the refrigerator for 2 days and 3 weeks in the freezer.
