Soup Opera

“Simple is not always easy”… something I had read and paid heed to. But when it comes to this recipe for Green Pea Soup, this adage goes right out of the window. Ingredients that are readily available at hand (for most people, unless you are a descendant of Mother Hubbard) and a cooking time that goes like "whoooosh" puts this formula right up there in my “easy-breezy” list

Green Pea Soup
(Serves 4)


Green Peas - 1 cup
Onions - 2 (medium sized)
Garlic - 5-6 big cloves
Green Chilli - 1 (small)
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt & Pepper - to season


1. Boil peas in water till done. Retain the stock. Alternatively, you could stick the peas in the micro and cook till soft and done
2. Chop onions, garlic and green chilli
3. Heat oil and sauté garlic and green chilli
4. Add onions and cook till soft
5. Put in cooked green peas and stock and bring to a boil
6. Puree this mixture in a blender till liquidized
7. Boil once again. At this stage, you will need to adjust the consistency by adding more water if required.
8. Season with salt and pepper
9. Voila …. a hearty bowlful to warm those cozy winter evenings
