In this 6 Minute Meal & a Deal, Alicia Vitarelli is in the Red Owl Tavern's kitchen learning how to make a chilled spring pea soup.
Red Owl Tavern: Chef Caitlin Mateo's Chilled Spring Pea Soup
2 cups Fresh peas, blanched (or may substitute frozen, thawed peas)
2 cups Baby spinach
2 each Fresh garlic cloves
cup Scallions, cut " in length
each Avocado, pit removed (you may use the whole avocado for thicker soup)
1 each lemon, juiced
3 cups vegetable stock, chilled
2 TBSP agave nectar
cup EVOO/canola oil blend
To Taste Kosher Salt
To begin making this chilled pea soup, make sure all ingredients are chilled before preparing. All of the ingredients will be used raw, so no need for any cooking!
Put the first 8 ingredients into a blender and begin to process on medium speed.
Once the soup is fully pureed, turn the blender to high speed and season with kosher salt, then add the oil blend in slowly until the soup is very smooth.
Chef Tip: After blending, taste and add additional season if needed
Pour into bowl and top with jumbo lump crabmeat, crme fraiche & evoo
Chef Tip: The soup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days
Chef Tip: The soup base is vegan so you can keep it vegan or vegetarian by simply changing the toppings
Chef's alternate topping suggestions:
-Chilled cooked quinoa, Greek yogurt drizzle (for vegan, you can use almond or coconut yogurt), cilantro
-Bacon lardons, grated hardboiled egg, red pepper flake
