Fresh Spring Pea Soup

Fresh Spring Pea Soup

Sharing is caring!

Pea soup does not have to be limited to dried split peas.  This easy vegetarian recipe uses fresh spring peas or you can substitute frozen if you are in a hurry or you don’t want to shell fresh ones.

We love fresh spring peas and were in the mood for a vegetarian version of the split soup.  We threw together this soup the other evening and surprisingly, it was very flavorful.  This recipe is a great one to have on hand when you need a quick and easy dinner.
