This soup from one of my favorite cookbooks, Deliciously Ella, will be entering my regular recipe rotation as it’s fresh and light taste is perfect for summer! It calls only 4 ingredients and is extremely easy to make. Healthy, tasty and easy – it’s everything I love in a dish!
- 5 1/2 cups peas
- 4 cups veggie stock
- 1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
- 12 sprigs of fresh mint
- salt and pepper to taste
Add peas and veggie stock to a large pot and bring to a boil, then take off of heat
Add rinsed cannellini beans and mint leaves
Blend contents until soup is smooth
Add salt and pepper to taste
Serve hot or cold
Why I love this: Peas contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals including vitamins C and K, and several B vitamins, plus manganese, phosphorus, and protein. This makes them an excellent anti-inflammatory food. Mint contains an antioxidant called rosmarinic acid, which can relieve seasonal allergy symptoms, the menthol it contains is a natural decongestant, and it can also soothe an upset stomach.
