Pea and Mint Soup
Makes 4 servings
2 cups vegetable broth
3 cups frozen peas, thawed
1/4 cup (25g) chopped green onion (green parts + little white) (1 medium)
3/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
1/4 of a medium avocado, pitted and peeled
1/2 cup (10g) firmly packed fresh mint leaves
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, plus more to taste
Throw the broth, peas, green onion, salt, pepper, and avocado into the blender jar of the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series Blender. Secure the lid, and set the blender to the Adapti-Blend™ Soup program. Blend until the machine turns itself off. Alternatively, blend for about 5 minutes, starting on speed 1 and gradually increasing to speed 10.
Add the mint leaves and lemon juice, and blast on high for 10 to 20 seconds until smooth and creamy. Tweak salt, pepper, and lemon juice to taste.
Soup will come out of the Blender hot. Serve with a swirl of dairy-free sour cream, plain yogurt, and garnish with mint leaves.
Prep Notes – I’ve given a measurement for the green onion as a guide for size as green onions vary so greatly. One medium green onion yields about ¼ cup chopped. You can just chop off the bulk of the white part of the onion and throw it in whole.)
