Spinach and Green Pea Soup

This is a fast and fresh spinach and green pea soup.  It’s a wonderful bright green – I like to think of it as a precursor to spring.   The green peas give the soup a slightly sweet taste and a dash of lemon and a sprinkle of parmesan at the end balances everything out.  This soup, like most soups, is even better the next day and it doesn’t lose any of its fresh green taste.

I love how fast this soup is to make.  From simmering the spinach and peas to pureeing – it’s 15  minutes top from start to finish.  Have it with a grilled cheese sandwich and this would make a warm and comforting meal in no time at all.
