Cheating-on-Winter Pea Soup


Cheating-on-Winter Pea Soup was a perfect recipe for this busy week.  It was quick and easy to make, light on calories, and quite delicious!

Sauteed onions are simmered in chicken broth, along with peas and romaine lettuce.  When everything is tender, the soup is pureed and served.  The “cheating” part of the title refers to the fact that frozen peas are used rather than fresh.

I served our soup with a dollop of sour cream and a garnish of chopped bacon.  The sour cream sank pretty quickly, so it didn’t make the photo very pretty.  In fact, I wasn’t feeling very inspired when I took the photos of this soup. Some days you just want to get the photos done quickly and get to eating!

Just because I wasn’t inspired for my photo doesn’t mean the soup wasn’t good!  It was light and fresh tasting and my husband and I both enjoyed it.  My daughter gave it one bite and decided that was enough.  I will definitely be making this one again.
