Asian Green Pea Soup


Having been an academician for almost 20 years now, writing academically certainly is easier compared to feature writing. Truly a difficult kick start, I am not shy to admit I struggled and created the biggest mess. Well, choices of words to relate to the contents, looking back now, oh gosh!! really embarrassing. But striving to learn is what I am trying my level best, I'm not there yet and I won't give up either. Only thing is that the hours in front of the laptop is the cause of the unbearable pain from my right shoulder all the way down my the hand.    

So, in between I am taking a break, but hopefully I won't give up. Okay, without further ado, here comes the recipe. Soup is seldom featured at home but when it rains, soupy soup it is. Made with green peas and flavoured up with fresh coriander leaves, garlic and ginger, this soup can be a starter or a whole package when paired with home made bread or store bought croissants and scrambled eggs.  

Ingredients
2 cups frozen green peas - rinse.
1/4 inch ginger - remove skin and slice
4 garlic - remove skin.
2-3 sprigs coriander leaves
1/4 cup cream or carton milk
Some virgin olive oil
Pepper and salt for taste
Method
Add the first 4 ingredients into a pot.
Pour about 2 cups of water.
Simmer and cook to soften the ingredients. . 
Remove from heat, slightly cool down slight and blend/purée to a smooth purée.
Pour back into the pan.
Simmer to heat through. 
(Note: add add water for a diluted version)
Pour milk/cream, season with pepper and salt.
Stir and off the heat. 
Drizzle olive oil in before serving.

  7. Love the look of your pea soup. We've been having a lot of peas but not so much in soup form. This has been on my mind for a while.
    And I love the idea of an intro but somehow have not really started my posts that way. You're doing great, Nava! It's a treat to read your posts.

  22. Wow! look at the colour...that is one reason why I like peas so much! And ginger garlic just makes everything so tasty.
    There are days for me when words flow and I need to put on my brakes and there are others when I struggle to write a single sentence. I think it has a lot to do with the frame of mind, stress etc. As for you, your pictures are enough to make everybody's mouth water and race to your website:-)
