Green Pea Soup

Sweet green peas are featured in this velvety, emerald-colored soup in delectable bite-sized pieces. The base can be quickly puréed using an immersion blender, but you can also pour the soup into a regular blender and purée it in batches. This filling soup, which is seasoned with creamy tahini, dill, and lemon juice, is a worthy addition to your dinner and a simple and inventive way to consume your vegetables.

Serving size: make 10 cups

Prep time: 20 mins

Cook time: 30 mins


1/2 cup fresh or frozen green peas

4 cups chopped fresh collard greens

4 cups chopped fresh spinach

8 oz. broccoli

1 medium onion

2 medium potatoes

3 cloves garlic

4 cups chopped fresh Swiss chard

3 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill

1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Sea salt, to taste

2 tbsp tahini


1- Cut the broccoli into large pieces, keeping the florets separate from the stems. You should have about 4 cups total. Peel any very tough stems. Place stems in a large soup pot. Add onion, potato, garlic, and 3 cups water. Bring to boiling over high heat; then reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, 10 minutes.

2- Add broccoli florets to the pot and cook 15 minutes more, or until broccoli is very tender. Add the Swiss chard and collard greens; cook 5 minutes more. Add the spinach; cook another 5 minutes.

3- Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. (Or carefully transfer the soup to a blender, working in batches if necessary, and blend until smooth, then return pureed soup to the pot.) The consistency should be moderately thick; add a little water if you need to thin it.

4- Stir in lemon juice, 1 tablespoon dill, and the pepper. Season with salt. Return soup to boiling, then turn off heat.

5- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the tahini with ¼ cup water until a smooth paste forms; stir mixture into soup.

6- For topping, in another small bowl combine green peas, and the remaining 1 tablespoon dill. Ladle soup into bowls. Serve warm.
