Spinach Pea Soup – The easiest way to get your greens in!

Spinach Pea Soup

This healthy spinach pea soup is another delicious way to get your greens in. Packed with nutrients and vitamins to keep the family healthy all year long.

If you’ve been hanging around on here for some time, you will know that I like spinach. In warmer months, I tend to drink a lot of green smoothies such as this Mango Strawberry Green Smoothie. And in the colder months I opt for soups such as this Spinach Broccoli and Apple soup.

Soups are easy to make and takes very little time to prepare. The same goes for this mean green soup. Although it is said that it is better to eat your greens whole, blending it is not a complete loss of nutrients. Blending the soup gives it a smooth texture, making it a toddler friendly meal as well. Basically throw everything into a pot, heat and blend. It’s ready to serve in 20 – 25 minutes! Easy peasy!

What will you need to make this spinach pea soup?

  • Leeks
  • Garlic
  • Rosemary
  • Peas
  • Spinach
  • Vegetable broth
  • Corn
  • Goat’s cheese (optional)
  • Olive oil

Ingredient substitutes

  • Leave out the goats cheese to make this a vegan spinach soup.
  • No leeks at hand – replace it with yellow onions.
  • Garnish the soup with fresh garden cress herbs and roasted sesame seeds.

Chef’s Tip:

This soup can be blended for a smooth texture. However if you prefer more of a bite, then keep some peas and corn aside and serve it with the soup. I find a using a hand blender much easier and quicker to use. No fuss in pouring the soup over from a pot over into a blender and back again. You also do not have to wait for the soup to cool down to blend it this way.

Serve suggestion:

Serve it hot with fresh bread or homemade cheese sticks.
