Fresh and nourishing. Light and easy.
Cucumber is a nice kidney tonic and is nice to have a little detoxing soup. Peas are a surprising “easy to have in your freezer food”, that is high in phyto-nutrients and even contain omega-3 fatty acids.
- 3 cups cubed cucumber
- 1 cup frozen organic sweet peas
- 1 apple (optional)
- 1/2 cup leek or you can use sweet onion
- 1 tsp garlic sea salt or roast 1 glove of garlic first before adding to the blender
- 1 handful of mint leaves and lemon verbena (or just mint)
- Serves 2
Mix everything in a blender. You can either serve it chilled or heat it slightly. It will change color when you heat it but a warm pea-soup is really light and lovely. Once it is made it oxidizes pretty fast so pour it into a closed container if you are not eating it immediately.
