Stir fry the veggies
  • Add vegetable broth to the pan and let it boil for 5 minutes
  • Tip: I always keep some vegetable broth handy. If I am not in a mood to prepare the broth or want a quick option, I simply use the veg broth available in stores. My go to option is the low sodium organic veg broth from Imagine
  • Now add green peas to it and let it boil for just about a minute or till the green peas start to turn color
  • Do not overcook the peas as it will lose its flavor
  • Let it cool for 5 minutes. Then strain the solids from the pan (broccoli, green peas, onion, ginger, garlic, chilli) and grind them to a smooth paste

  • Now the soup is ready!

  1. This recipe looks absolutely delicious! My kids are very picky and I’ve found that soups like this one are an excellent way to get some veggies in their little bodies. I’ve had pea soup before but never considered making one with broccoli!
