flexcook's picture
Peas impart not only a lovely verdant color to this soup, but also a sweet, delicate taste, which is tempered by the heat of the red chili and black pepper. This creamy, delicious soup is wonderful on a cold winter evening.
Ingredients
  Sweet peas/10 ounce package of frozen sweet peas 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Light olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 , chopped
