Olive Oil-Scallion Green Pea Soup

Spring has sprung! Sweet green peas come together with basil and peas in a perfect combination, simultaneously perking one another up, while nutty Parmesan gives a depth of flavor that makes you remember this soup. It's all tied together by Delicate Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

 

Made with these products from The Olive Press:

Ingredients
  • 1 10 oz. bag frozen green peas 
  • 1 15 oz. can vegetable stock 
  • 6 scallions, chopped, ends removed, plus more for garnish 
  • 3 tbsp Delicate Extra Virgin Olive Oil, such as Koroneiki
  • 1 small bunch fresh basil, chopped 
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions
  1. Combine green peas, stock, scallions, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, basil and Parmesan in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Stir gently until peas soften. Bring to a light boil and then reduce heat to medium. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes or until peas are soft.
  2. Remove from heat and puree using a food processor, blender or immersion blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. If serving chilled, refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until cold. If serving hot, serve immediately, garnishing individual bowls with Parmesan and scallions.

Serves: 2-4
Notes: Note: this soup is equally delicious served hot or cold.
