What better way to warm up in winter than with a soup? I propose you an original recipe of Broccoli, Pea and Ginger Soup. The freshness of the ginger goes superbly with the sweetness of the peas. Plus, this recipe is 100% vegan and gluten-free.

Soups, a winter dish par excellence!

Basically, I’m not much of a soup person, except for ramen, those Japanese noodle soups. However, in the winter and especially after the holidays, I like to cook soups with vegetables. I then serve them either as an appetizer or as a main course for a light meal. I often serve them with bread and cheese or leftovers from the week.

What I especially like about the soups is :

  1. That they allow to fill up with vitamins thanks to the different vegetables present in the soup. Be careful not to cook the vegetables too long to keep a maximum of vitamins. 25-30 minutes of cooking over medium heat is usually enough.
  2. That they bring a feeling of satiety. If served as an appetizer, they allow you to avoid eating too much afterwards. Ideal to get back to a balanced diet as I said above after the excesses of the end of year celebrations.
  3. There’s nothing easier or faster than a soup! The most time consuming part is preparing the vegetables. However, if you use frozen vegetables, as in this recipe, your soup will be ready in less than 30 minutes.

Then pour in the vegetable broth. Then cook over medium heat for 25-30 minutes.

To check if the vegetables are cooked, cut one of the larger pieces of broccoli in half and if it cuts easily, it is cooked. If still crunchy, cook a few more minutes.

Once the vegetables are cooked, add a few mint leaves and the juice of one and a half limes. Then mix it all together. Check the seasoning. Serve with a few peas and a wedge of lime as decoration.
