Frozen Peas Soup

This is the perfect solution for that bag of slightly freezer-burned peas that seemingly lives in the back of all freezers. But even you you must go to the store to purchase frozen peas, this is a great soup, wholly different from soup made with dried peas.

Ingredients

HOW MANY PEAS YOU HAVE WILL DETERMINE HOW MUCH OF EACH INGREDIENT YOU NEED.

frozen peas
water to cover plus a bit
salt and pepper

dried or fresh herb, e.g. mint, thyme, sage, etc.
opt.
milk or cream
opt.
cooked ham
opt.
swiss (or other) cheese, shredded

Step-By-Step

1Put frozen peas in a sauce pan and cover with water, about a cup of water for every cup of peas.
2Season the peas with salt, pepper and the herb of your choice. Dried mint is a wonderful choice but may be jarring to more conservative eaters who think of mint as being only suited to sweets.
3When the peas are tender, use an immersion blender* to create a smooth soup, adding milk or cream as necessary to get a thick and pleasing consistency. Adjust the seasoning.

*Alternatively, use a regular blender or a food mill to puree the peas.
4Stir in the diced ham, heat through, and serve, garnished with the shredded cheese.

Two problems solved: a delicious soup for supper and no more forgotten bags of peas in the back of the freezer!
