Sara Snow, our fresh living chef, whips up a potent pea soup that delivers great taste and holistic health benefits.

Detox Pea Soup

We think of peas as being kid food but they’re excellent for adults too. A cup of peas has less than 100 calories but they’re high in protein, fiber and nutrients that are important antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. This healthy soup can also be made with broccoli, arugula or a host of other powerful foods.


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 small leek

2 cloves garlic

2 cups peas (fresh or frozen)

6 cups water

1 cup fresh basil leaves

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground pepper


In a small soup pot, sauté the chopped leeks and garlic in olive oil along with the salt and pepper, until slightly tender. Add the peas and stir to cook for 2 minutes. Add the water, bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes.

Allow to cool then pour soup mixture into a blender. Blend in the basil leaves.

Return the mixture to the pot and heat to serve.
