Pea Soup!

Fresh Pea Soup; image by bport7831

There’s nothing like a good hot soup on a cold winter day. Recently I brought one of my favorite soups, Simple Fresh Pea, to a potluck dinner at Cifax Yoga. Later, my super-sweet-bendy-flexy-yogi-goddess of a teacher, Donna, told me she overheard a couple of students wondering what I had added to the soup to make it so creamy The answer? Nothing!

Starchy veggies likes peas, carrots, squash and sweet potatoes give their own creamy texture to soups when pureed. This allows you to indulge in a filling, healthy dairy-free soup that is low in calories and fat and high in fiber. Pea soup is a particular favorite of mine, and most people don’t know how high in protein the magnificent little pod is. So the next time you’re feeling soupy, grab a bag of frozen peas (or fresh if they’re in season) and get to work. You won’t regret it.
