This bright soup is great in both warmer or colder months. Try it cold, like a gazpacho in the summer, or have it simmering away on the stove during winter. It's also an incredible source of protein, from both the green peas and edamame.

Who would have thought pea soup could taste so great to an 8 and 11 year old!? My kids love this soup and I love that it has lots of great things in it to nourish their bodies. We've had it in a bread bowl from time to time and love how easy and great it is!

Mmm love the bread bowl idea, Becca, thanks a bunch for sharing 🤩

Love this recipe! Made it without thyme and with green bell peppers...and it tasted superb! Thank you so much for this recipe! <3

This recipe was absolutely delicious. The blend of flavors is really approachable and comforting.

I unfortunately struggled with the texture on this one. I used a good immersion blender that has worked well in other applications. No matter how long I spent blending, I was never able to break up the "skins" of the peas. The dried thyme, in addition, remained twiggy after cooking. So I sort of had to chew the soup, but hey, I happily ate the entire batch anyway.

My takeaway is that getting a nice, smooth texture might be more difficult for us folks who don't have high-powered blenders, and that fresh thyme might be a nice addition. But all in all, I'm game to try it again!

Thank you for sharing, Ash! A high powdered blender and giving it some time to blend are definitely helpful for this one :)

Tried this recipe today! It turned out to be absolutely delicious. The whole family loved it too. Truly a hug in a bowl!

Another amazing student friendly dish - great for lazy days, especially when I treat myself to some nice, sourdough or Turkish bread. Thank you!

Nice and light green soup. Love the vibrant color but it wasn't substantial enough to be a meal in itself for us, so I would recommend pairing it with something as well.

PUL Team - July 12, 2021, 7:34 a.m.

We appreciate the review, Victoria! We'd recommend pairing the soup with croutons (pickuplimes.com/recipe/crispy…) or as a side with a more savoury dish such as our loaded avocado and hummus veggie sandwich (pickuplimes.com/recipe/loaded…) if you're interested :)


Bex - June 1, 2021, 9:24 p.m.

We love this super healthy soup, even my 11 and 8 year old boys. Delicious!


Meriem - May 23, 2021, 4:09 p.m.

My little kids and I love this soup it is so simple to make. We love the croutons as well. I was thinking what could we serve along with it if we want the soup as a side dish. What are the flavors/meal ideas would go with it ? Thank you

PUL Team - May 24, 2021, 7:37 a.m.

So lovely to hear you and your little ones are enjoying the soup, Meriem! We've enjoyed the soup as a side with savoury sandwiches, such as our loaded avocado and hummus veggie sandwich (pickuplimes.com/recipe/loaded…), rich quinoa and red lentil stuffed sweet potatoes (pickuplimes.com/recipe/quinoa…) and our creamy green leek and pea pasta (pickuplimes.com/recipe/creamy…). Let us know if you serve it with any good pairings 😀

Hello! What is the serving size (in mls) of the soups that the nutritional information is based on? :)

PUL Team - May 22, 2021, 11:35 p.m.

Hey Bec, a serving is around 1.5 cups (375 mL) although in real life it may depend on some factors such as how long you leave the soup on the stove as some will evaporate or how big the onion used is 😊
