One cup of peas contains 9 grams of protein, 9 grams of fiber, 26% RDA of Vitamin A, 38% RDA Vitamin C, 14% RDA iron and zero fat!

What a super superfood!

So here is a warm and hearty way to make your peace with peas: pea soup!

Here's my take on vegan pea soup. I love fresh pea soup. But that is tricky to find in the winter. I also love dried split pea soup. But for nutrient-sake, I love using frozen whole peas. Frozen veggies retain a very high amount of nutrients and taste. Buy a higher end brand of organic peas at Whole Foods for your best bet on taste. Here it is:

NO PAPARAZZI PEAS! PEA SOUP RECIPE
1 pound bag frozen whole peas, organic is best
1 vidalia sweet white onion
1 shallot
2 bay leaves
1 tsp. cayenne
1-2 tsp. sea salt
2 tsp. fresh ground back pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup diced carrots
4 large shiitake mushrooms
3 Tbsp Veganaise
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth

To Make:
Saute olive oil with sliced mushrooms, diced onions, chopped shallots and half of carrots. (About 2-3 minutes, stir constantly.)

In a sauce pan, add peas, broth, salt, pepper, cayenne, bay leaves and veganaise. Bring to a boil.
Add sauteed ingredients.
Simmer for ten minutes, covered.

Serve in cozy hot bowls. (Remove bay leaves.)

Garnish with fresh parsley, fresh ground black pepper and a dollop of veganaise.

Options:
