Green Pea Soup

Green Pea Soup
Green pea soup is a classic, everybody loves this soup, and it is inexpensive and fulfilling.


  • 1 leek, washed and cut in half-rings (use also the green parts)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • green peas (one package, 1LB)
  • water

Spice With:

  • 3 cloves
  • nutmeg
  • 3 bay leafs
  • 1/2 inch ginger (finely minced)
  • salt
  • pepper or chili



Wash and finely chop the leaks, including the dark green parts

Simmer the leak with the garlic in a little bit of olive oil, stirring

Add the spices and the green peas

Add enough water (covering all ingredients well, at least 1 inch water above the ingredients!)

When peas are soft, use a blender to puree to a smooth soup, after having removed the bay leaves and cloves if you can spot them.

Tip: to wash leek fast, cut the long side in half, that allows you to remove any dirt with ease.

Ginger is best when used fresh and chopped small

Tip: I usually cook this soup in the pressure cooker, then it only takes me about 20 min to prepare and having it ready to serve.

Serving: Grate some cheese on each plate of soup, that looks nice and makes the meal more rich. Serve as a full meal with rye bread and butter and various cheeses and a salad.

In the late 1970s when the government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food industry responded by pouring more sugar in. The result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control.
