Simple, Healthy Green Pea Soup

Eating this green pea soup is a great way to pack in the nutrients. Recovering from surgery and a bad case of strep throat, I threw this together to aid my body through recovery. It's light, clean, filling, and full of flavor. My kids love it. I just add a little milk to cool it down so they can eat it right away.

  • 2 teaspoons butter

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped, or more to taste

  • 2 (16 ounce) packages frozen peas

  • ½ teaspoon dried dill, or to taste

  • 1 (900 ml) carton chicken broth, or as needed

  • cup milk (Optional)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Sauté onion in hot butter until golden and translucent, about 10 minutes. Stir garlic into onions and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  2. Stir peas and dill into onion mixture and pour in enough chicken broth to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until hot, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir milk into soup.

  3. Purée soup with an immersion blender or pour pea soup into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold the lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Purée in batches until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
