Pea soup brings back memories of my grandma, who used to make a fantastic split pea soup. For this healthy pea soup recipe, I used frozen peas, because that’s what I had available. You can use split peas too if you so desire.
This pea soup recipe is really easy. I added sauteed onion and radish, along with a little broth, garlic, and butter to give it a rich, creamy flavor. You can even add a little milk or yogurt if you want it creamier.
The result: a healthy pea soup recipe that’s low in calories but still tastes great. Check it out …

Ingredients: Healthy Pea Soup Recipe
- 12 oz. frozen peas
- 1 onion
- 3 radishes
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 3 T butter with olive oil
- 1 T olive oil
- Cooking spray
Chop the onion and set a quarter of it aside. Heat a pan over medium heat with the olive oil and cook the remaining 3/4 of the onion for 5-7 minutes. Meanwhile, peel and dice the radishes. Add the radishes to the onion and add the butter and a little black pepper. Cook another 5 minutes. Add chicken broth to a soup pan and bring to a boil. Add frozen peas and when the liquid starts bubbling, reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the onions (including the other 1/4 you set aside), radishes, and garlic powder and simmer for 10 minutes.
Pour soup mixture into a blender (I used my Vitamix) and blend for 20-30 seconds. Transfer back to pot and simmer for another few minutes before serving. Transfer to bowl and top with black pepper to taste.
