Cold Mint Pea Soup

This recipe is inspired by a past colleague of mine who keeps a health blog with fitness tips and nutritious recipes.  Her version of the recipe can be found here.  Thanks, Monica!
This cold soup is super easy and quick to make (definitely under 5 minutes).
I slightly modified it by adding spinach to the blender and pistachios as garnish for a bit of crunch.  The classic mint/pea combo is beyond refreshing on a hot summer day.  It makes for a quick and healthy snack or even can be served as a side during lunch. 
Serves 2
Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups frozen peas
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • Small handful of fresh mint
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • pinch of sea salt
  • fresh black pepper to taste
  • 1/8 cup lightly salted pistachios, roughly chopped

Preparation
  1. Add all ingredients (except the pistachios) to blender and puree
  2. Serve immediately and garnish with pistachios and fresh mint leaves

Health Benefits
This recipe gets bonus healthy points for mixing peas (an excellent source of vitamins A and C) with raw spinach.  As I mentioned in my last post, when you combine vitamin C with raw spinach your body is able to absorb its iron and calcium.
Plus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, peas are a good low calorie source of protein.  1 serving of this recipe contains more protein than a whole egg or a tablespoon of peanut butter.  And, unlike eggs, 1 serving of peas has less than one gram of fat and no cholesterol.
