I often say that I see all the recipes as my children as each one is unique and has characteristics that make them stand out. However, I single out some recipes and show them off a little more. One such recipe is today, a spring velouté green pea soup with herbs.
The specific recipe for this delicate and highly aromatic soup was created with the inspiration of the green counters in the local food market. Fresh peas, very elegant artichokes, carrots and freshly harvested potatoes. And of course the herbs! You pass in front of them and barely manage to hold back so as not to turn your head to see where these wonderful smells come from. Mint, coriander, basil and so much more. In this particular recipe I used with mint and basil.
THE INGREDIENTS OF THE RECIPE
I think you got a taste of what ingredients I used so that young and old can enjoy this wonderful velouté green peas spring soup. But let’s see them in more detail:
- Fresh green peas, artichokes, potatoes, carrots and onions
- Fresh mint leaves and fresh basil leaves
- Chicken broth, preferably homemade
To serve it I used some yogurt, lemon and toasted bread. I even toasted the bread in a little olive oil to which I had added lemon thyme.
HOW CAN I MAKE HOMEMADE CHICKEN BROTH?
Homemade chicken stock is an essential tool for your kitchen. Homemade chicken stock can make a simple dish taste divine. You can make some and keep it the freezer and use it whenever you want to enhance flavor. You may find my recipe here.
CAN I USE FROZEN GREEN PEAS?
If you can not find fresh green peas, or do not want to bother cleaning it (although I find it extremely fun) you can use frozen green peas. Needless to say, fresh peas have better taste and sweetness.
