Pea Pod Soup Recipe


  • 1 pound freshly shelled pea pods, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 5 cups chicken stock, warm
  • salt, pepper, sugar to taste
  • 2 sprigs mint
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas
  • crumbled bacon


  1. Melt the butter in a small skillet and “sweat” the onions on low for about 5 minutes, until they are soft. Add them to the warm stock.
  2. Bring the stock to a boil.
  3. Add the pea pods & peas, seasoning with salt, pepper, and sugar as desired.
  4. Bring the stock to a boil for about 6-8 minutes.
  5. Toss in the mint and then run the soup through the blender until it’s smooth.
  6. Strain to remove the strings. (Running them through the berry screen of a food strainer works beautifully.)
  7. Garnish with bacon crumbles for a little something to bite.
