Easy Pea & Pesto Soup

This is my version of Nigella Lawson's Pea and Pesto Soup.

Easy Pea & Pesto Soup
Yields: 4 servings
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, gluten-free

  • 3 cups Veggie Broth
  • 3 cups frozen Peas
  • 2 Scallions
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup Oil-Free Pesto
  • 1/2 tsp. Lime Juice
  • Nutritional Yeast to taste

  1. Bring Broth to a boil
  2. Add Peas, Scallions & Salt, boil for 7 minutes
  3. Discard Scallions
  4. Pour soup into a blender, add Lime Juice & Pesto
  5. Blend until smooth
  6. Served topped with Nutritional Yeast

Hoff Thoughts: A little prep-work is required on this one as you'll want to prepare the Pesto ahead of time or not... Be careful when blending hot liquids, do not fill the blender more than halfway, blend in batches if need be to prevent a volcano incident.


  1. Any other soup ideas to combine with pesto?

  2. None come to mind, but since the pesto is what made this soup fantastic, I will have to ponder this...
