A quick fix for light dinner
The Quick Pea Soup Recipe is absolutely simple and quick to make and delicious soup to make. Made from freshly steamed peas, some olive oil, black pepper and cream makes this nutritious and wholesome too. The soup can be savoured any time of the year and I find it particularly handy especially on hectic days when I want to have a quick dinner with a soup and bread.

How to make Quick Creamy Pea Soup Recipe
To begin making the Quick Pea Soup Recipe first steam the fresh peas along with salt and a pinch of sugar.
Heat olive oil in a sauce pan on medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for a few minutes until the oil is fragrant with garlic. Add the peas in and stir fry for a few seconds. Turn off the heat.
Add all the ingredients to the blender, including a few whole black pepper corns and blend into a smooth puree.
Note: If your blender cant take in the heat, then allow the peas to cool completely before you can blend it.
Pour the pea soup into the sauce pan adding more water or milk to adjust the consistency of the soup. Adjust the consistency of the pea soup to suit your palate. Check the salt and pepper levels and adjust to suit your taste.
Stir in the fresh cream and serve the Quick Pea Soup along with freshly toasted bread or warmed bread rolls.
You can also garnish the Pea Soup with croutons or grated cheddar cheese. I have drizzled some single cream to make it a bit richer.
