Seven soups every Saturday: fresh pea soup recipes


As the garden outside my office window turns increasingly green, I can't help but think that, even in waterlogged Rhode Island, we're only a few weeks away from the first seasonal green soups made from local farm produce. Fiddlehead ferns, leeks, lettuce and asparagus all will debut at the farmers markets next month, but just a bit south of here, fresh peas come into their own in a few weeks.

These seven fresh pea soup recipes caught my eye this week:

English pea soup, from Hedonia

Fresh pea soup, from The Cooking Photographer

Thai fresh pea soup with green curry, from One Perfect Bite

Chilled fresh pea and buttermilk soup, from The Bitten Word

Summer pea soup with miso marinated tofu, from Guilty Kitchen

Easy peasy pea soup, from Chez Us

Chilled leek and pea soup with mint, from Not Derby Pie

Find more delicious fresh pea soup recipes with Food Blog Search. Come back every Saturday for seven soup recipes to enjoy any day of the week.


The soup bowls in the photo today are from Jean's kitchen. Jean writes the blog The Complete Olive; her bowls are from Bennington Potters, in Vermont.

If you'd like to share photos of seven soup bowls from your kitchen -- or from a friend's house, or your parents', or an antique shop, or a housewares store, or a school or restaurant -- I'd love to share those photos on Saturdays.

Here are the ground rules: send one photo, of seven soup bowls. The bowls must all be able to be used for eating soup (no mixing bowls or troughs, please). Send the largest file your camera will allow; I'll size it to fit. Make sure the photo is in focus (very important). Tell me in one sentence whose bowls are in the photo, or where you took the picture. If you're a blogger, I'll link to your blog.

That's it. One photo, seven soup bowls, one sentence about them. Email to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.

Can you believe I've never had a pea soup other than split pea? I'd better get on that! Love the seven bowls idea. You'll have quite a lovely collage after a few months.

Has anyone made a pea soup with fresh peas in a clear broth? These soups sound scrumptious but I'd like something lighter abd brothier.

I spotted the origin of those soup bowls immediately! I love Bennington Pottery and have a "sister set" in mustard yellow.

I went searching through my house...I have lots of soup bowls, but I don't have seven matching ones!

Kathy, we'd love to see seven soup bowls from your kitchen!

Pauline, this is just a sampling of pea soups that caught my eye. Yes, there are more brothy soups; check Food Blog Search for recipes.

TW, I've seen those mustard colored bowls, too. Bennington pottery is timeless, isn't it?

Pam, matching or nonmatching, we'd love to see your bowls. And you can look back at the photos from my own collection for some ideas.

I need to start writing to santa for a blender :) Soups do look good though. Thanks
