Quick and Easy Pea Soup
Bag of frozen green peas
1 garlic clove crushed
Salt and pepper
Vegeta or chicken bullion cubes
4-5 sprigs of flat leaf parsley
Orzo pasta or home made dumplings (optional)
In a large pot add water, chicken breast pieces, carrots, whole small onion, crushed garlic clove and then add peas.
Bring to a simmer. Season with vegeta or chicken bullion cubes, salt and black pepper.
After 20-25 minutes of cooking (when the carrots are almost done) you can add noodles (you can makes tiny dumplings or just put a handfull of orzo pasta).
This will cook in 5-7 minutes.
Take out the onion and the parsley sprigs.
Taste, adjust the seasoning, and serve.
If uou use canned sweet peas, add the peas with the liquid from the can a few minutes before the soup is done.
This is a family favorite. Super light, healhy, clear soup.
