Nothing better than a warm and tasty soup for those cold winter days. It’s flavor and delicious aroma will have everyone wanting more.
2 cups of green peas
1 cup of broccoli
1/2 cup of chopped bell pepper
1/2 cup of chopped onion
2 garlic cloves
2 cups of water
1 tbsp. of peanut butter
1 tbsp. of vegan butter (I used Earth Balance brand)
1 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. of salt
1/2 tsp. of pepper
1 tbsp. of marjoram
1 tbsp. of dried parsley flakes
1/4 cup of Daiya Mozzarella cheese (optional)
-On a pot at medium-high heat add the olive oil, onions, peppers, and garlic, followed by the vegan butter and let it brown for about 3 minutes.
-Add your peas, broccoli, water, and spices. Bring it to boil and let it cook for about 8 minute or until the veggies are soft.
-Using a hand mixer, puree the soup until it has a rich and thick consistency and add the peanut butter. (If you don’t have a hand mixer you can always use your blender, puree it, and bring back to heat.) Let it cook for another 5 minutes so that all the flavors come together. (If adding the cheese this is the time to do it.)
Serve and Enjoy!
