Sencha Green Pea Soup

Sencha and Green Pea Soup
Looking for a simple soup that comes together in minutes and tastes clean and fresh?  Try our Sencha Green Pea Soup!

This delicate, blended soup combines the sweet and grassy taste of sencha with the crisp flavour of green peas.  We recommend avoiding the addition of strong flavours like onion and garlic to this soup, since those will mask the fresh green tea and sweet vegetables.  Instead, we’ve added classic mint and a hint of tarragon to help those gentle, summer flavours take centre stage.

Serve with a slice of your favourite bread for a light lunch, or as the starter for a larger meal.

Ingredients:

3 cups frozen peas
1 cup of freshly brewed Tealish Organic Sencha
Generous pinch of dried tarragon
2 teaspoons fresh mint, minced, plus extra to garnish
Salt and pepper, to taste
Olive oil, to garnish

Directions:

1. Bring a pot of water to boil.  Add peas and cook, covered, for about five minutes, until peas are bright green and soft.

2. Put peas, tea, tarragon, mint, salt and pepper into a blender, and process until combined.  You don’t want the soup to be completely smooth – a few pieces of whole peas add a lovely texture.

3. Pour into bowls, and garnish with mint and a drizzle of olive oil.
