Green Pea and White Bean Soup
1 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 small onion, minced
540 mL can of navy beans, rinsed and drained
4 c. frozen peas
900 mL carton of chicken broth
Garnish: crumbled goat cheese, pancetta or bacon crumbles
Heat a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add oil, onion and garlic. Sautee for about 3 minutes, stirring continuously until the onion is soft.
Add beans, peas and broth. Bring to a boil over the medium heat. This will take about 12 minutes.
Remove from heat and puree with an immersion blender. Simmer on very low heat for 5-10 minutes.
Serve garnished with crumbled bacon or pancetta and goat cheese.
This soup was different, but really nice. It is a great lunch or served as a side or appetizer. It came together really easily and quickly too.
