Creamy Green Pea Soup

This creamy green pea soup recipe is an easy, vegetarian soup recipe you can make in less than half an hour! You’ll love its buttery flavor, semi-sweet taste and creamy texture!

I love this creamy green peas soup! It was the first time I cooked and ate green pea soup and I was amazed by its lovely taste! I actually ate two extra servings.

This creamy green pea soup recipe has a lacto-vegetarian and a vegan version. Try which one you prefer. Personally, I think the vegetarian one is better, as I added butter and yogurt which gave it a special flavor. The vegan is just as good if you add good quality extravirgin olive oil and some croutons…YUM!

By the way, I was intrigued by this awesome creamy green pea soup with mint and coconut and I think it will be next on my To-Try List! 🙂

Let me know which version of this creamy green pea soup you tried. Looking forward to reading your comments!

Sorry, when _do_ you use the butter/oil?

Oh.. I forgot to mention that sorry! I just edited the post. You add the butter right before you start blending the veggies. It gives the soup a really good taste.

how much yogurt did you add? thanks

I added yogurt just for garnish, about 1 tbsp per serving but you can add more or less or not at all if you want. It gives something extra to the taste but if you're vegan you can skip it :)
