GREEN PEA ASPARAGUS SOUP | Dairy and gluten-free, it is perfect for vegans
Seeing today is Green Monday (in Hong Kong), I have dedicated this post for…yep, you guessed it – a green dish._DSC1193
Introducing my asparagus green pea soup — tadaa!. A harmonious concoction of leeks, shallots, thyme, asparagus and green peas, this dairy-free soup is perfect for the warm weather and what’s more, it is gluten-free and perfect for the discerning vegans.
Oh, and if you have a high-quality extra virgin olive oil sitting around at home idly, this is the perfect opportunity to drizzle some on top before serving. It’ll make it that extra bit more luscious and fancy 🙂
