Sweet Pea And Spinach Soup
Serves: 4-6
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 (8 oz) bags fresh pre-washed spinach
  • 2 (10 oz) bags frozen peas
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups fresh mint leaves or fresh cilantro or basil leaves
  • ¾ cup cashew yogurt (plain, unsweetened)
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  1. Heat oil in a deep pan and sautee the onions until soft (about 5 minutes)
  2. Add the fresh spinach (one bag at a time as it is very bulky but not to worry it cooks down quickly!)
  3. Once the spinach is completely wilted (5-6 minutes), add the peas and water and bring to a quick boil.
  4. Turn down the heat, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and add the fresh mint or cilantro or basil, salt and pepper.
  6. Let cool for a few minutes and place the soup in a food processor (you will have to do it in several batches) and process until smooth, or better yet, you can use a stick hand blender to blend the soup to desired creaminess right in the pot (see below).
  7. Add the cashew yogurt and briefly heat through while stirring.
  8. Ladle the soup in individual bowls with a drizzle of cashew yogurt for a beautiful presentation.
