Cream Of Pea Soup


Cream of pea soup is a very yummy comfy soup during winter months.I was watching a cookery show where Chef Sanjeev Kapoor one of the most well known celebrity chef from India was showing this soup.It looks scrumptious so I take no time to make it.I improvised the recipe by adding fresh cream and dried basil as the fresh is not available to me  but truly speaking it taste awesome. Fresh green peas is also good for health as it's low in fat and full of protein, fiber and micronutrients. Help in anti-aging, strengthen immune system and  full of energy. So for me cream of pea is one I love any time and I am sure if you try once it will soon be in your fav list. Give a try and let me know.
