Spring Pea Soup
Makes: 4 servings
Total cook time: 20 minutes
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
3/4 cup frozen peas (reserve 1/4 cup for later)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 an onion
3/4 cup hot water
3/4 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons Okra Powder (featured in our July Nourishing Essentials Care Package)
1 green onion, thinly sliced
Heat oil in a small pot over medium heat. Add onions and a pinch of salt. Stir continuously until translucent and caramelized (about 5-7 min).
Add peas and another pinch of salt. Stir until heated through (2-3 minutes). Add coconut milk, hot water and remainder of salt. Heat until just before boiling (5-7 minutes). Whisk in the okra powder, stir for a couple of minutes and turn off the heat.
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth. Pour into bowls. If you have some left over coconut milk, add a spoonful to each bowl and give it a gentle swirl. Garnish with green onions and peas.
