Green Pea & Avocado Soup

You’d think by now I’d be drowning in soups (what with all these blog posts on soup). Alas, I’m not, but I’ve used my nutritionist skills to build a makeshift raft and it’s waiting in the corner of the room, just in case I should need it.

Today’s soup post is a pea soup post. Pea soup is the real deal, am I right?Β I remember eating loads of it as a wee one (the kind with ham and butter in it, oopsy!). Today’s pea soup has been tweaked in all the right places and I absolutely adore its creaminess, brought to you by none other than my friend the avocado.

If there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s soup from a can. Not only does it contain loads of sodium and additives, it just never tastes as good as the home-made stuff. Plus, the lining of cans often contain BPA (which stands for bisphenol-A) and is considered an endocrine disruptor by the FDA. And while I understand the “time is of the essence/time is money” philosophy, there are plenty soups that can be whipped up conveniently and quickly. Plus, I am a firm believer that soups are a great way to get rid of all those veggies lurking in your fridge (#leavenovegetablebehind). Β Just a few humble vegetables can yield a stellar soup perfect for cold evenings, casual entertaining (impress your friends πŸ˜‰ ) or curling up with a romantic comedy (I’m very much aware admitting one is into rom coms is like admitting mild stupidity, haha).

On that note, soup’s on!
