Typical cream-based soups, full of dietary insults, can do a lot of damage to our health. You won’t miss them with our Pritikin chefs’ savory Cream of Green Pea Soup.
In a stockpot, sauté onion, fennel, and garlic until translucent. Add vegetable stock and potato, and cook on medium heat until potato softens and begins to break apart, about 25 minutes.
Add thyme, mustard, and Pritikin “Shake It” Table Blend Seasoning, and cook for another 5 minutes.
Turn the flame off and add baking soda. When it begins to foam, add green peas, wasabi powder, and remaining ingredients. Let sit for 5 minutes.
In a food processor, blend. Serve immediately.
