Coconut Pea Soup (Vegan)

Yield: 9 cups

Coconut Pea Soup (Vegan)

A super easy vegan pea soup made with coconut milk.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups peas (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cups canned coconut milk (get the full fat stuff!)
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. If you’re using frozen peas, let them thaw.
  2. Heat a soup pot over medium heat with some olive oil (1-2 tbsp will do). Simmer the onion and garlic in the olive oil until soft.
  3. Add in the vegetable broth and bring to a simmer.
  4. Add in the peas and let simmer for 5-6 minutes. If you leave the soup simmering for too long at this stage, the peas will lose their bright green color (it will still be yummy—just not as pretty). Remove the pot from heat.
  5. Place the soup in a blender and add in the coconut milk and lime juice. Blend until smooth. You can do this in batches if your blender isn’t big enough. Sprinkle in some salt and pepper to taste when fully pureed.
  6. You can eat the soup warm or chill it in the fridge for 1 hour. I prefer most soups cold so I like this option.

This soup is a great option if you’re meal prepping for the week. It’s delicious served warm and cold, takes only 15 minutes to make, and stores well in the refrigerator. You can top it with croutons, plain popcorn (trust me—it’s delicious) or, as I did in these pictures, toasted coconut chips. Coconut Pea Soup (Vegan) -- so easy to make!

  1. This looks so yummy! An interesting combo I’ve never thought of – peas and coconut milk. I’m BIG into coconut milk/oil/butter/anything right now, so I’ll definitely be trying this. Also, I love how bright green the pictures came out! (How did you do that?) I’m usually a hot soup kind of person, but this one looks like a good one to try cold – especially with the weather warming up!

  2. This sounds super awesome!

  3. This soup looks amazingly yummy! Chilled on a hot summer day…
