I tested the recipe both in the lacto-vegetarian and vegan versions. Personally, I prefer the lacto-vegetarian version, which includes butter and cream, because the butter adds a rich and pleasant taste, especially when quality butter is used.

Regardless of your preferences, both versions are extremely tasty and satisfying. And don’t forget to add croutons for extra texture and flavor! I look forward to hearing your opinion on this wonderful recipe. And if you are looking for other creamy soup recipes, I recommend that you also try Cream of roasted tomatoes with feta cheese, Cream of vegetables, Cream of mushroom soup, Cream of broccoli.

Topping ideas for creamy green pea soup

  • Fresh aromatic herbs: Add a touch of freshness and fragrance with fresh leaves of mint, parsley or thyme. Finely chopped and sprinkled generously on top, these herbs enhance the flavor and bring a colorful appearance.
  • Crunchy pumpkin seeds: For added texture and nutrition, sprinkle crunchy pumpkin seeds over the cream soup. They add a delicious crunch and provide an additional supply of proteins, fibers and healthy fats.

  • Drizzle of olive oil: Finish the green pea soup with a fine drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. This adds a touch of richness and flavor, perfectly complementing the delicate taste of the peas.
  • Fried bacon: For an explosion of flavor and extra consistency, add a few pieces of fried bacon on top of the soup. For the vegan version, I recommend my vegan bacon recipes.
  • Croutons: For a crunchy and comforting texture, add fresh croutons on top of the pea soup. They absorb the liquid well and bring a pleasant contrast of consistency.

Sorry, when _do_ you use the butter/oil?


Tuesday 12th of March 2013

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


Thursday 6th of December 2012

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 :)
