Simple Soup

This has got to be the best and simplest recipe for pea soup! It’s easy to make, and totally delicious. Now that Summer is coming to a halt, I’m starting to get in the mood to cook more warm, robust, fall and winter foods. This recipe is perfect as a starter or you can have it for lunch with a small sandwich like I did today!

Easy Pea Soup recipe after the jump…


2 Packages of Frozen Peas
1 Quart of Chicken Stock (packaged or home made)
1 leek, coarsely chopped
1 large Garlic clove, coarsely chopped
2 slices of pancetta
1 Tablespoon coarsely chopped mint


Heat a large stock pot with a small splash of olive oil. Add pancetta and cook until crispy. Remove cooked pancetta and add leeks. Cook leeks until transparent, about 5 minutes. Add Garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add peas and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, cover and lower heat. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add a small ladle full of soup to a blender. Blend small amount and then continue adding the rest of the soup making sure to have the top of the blender cover open. You don’t want to add all of the soup at once or else it will explode! Add the mint and blend the entire soup until completely smooth. Serve soup in a bowl and sprinkle some of the crispy pancetta! Enjoy!

    I like this kind of soup with a little cream in it. Unfortunately I can’t find pancetta near where I live, so I guess I will have to settle for some lean bacon or ham.

    Simplest? Leek, pancetta, and mint? Are you kidding?

    Boil peas, and blend them. Season to taste.
