Green peas soup


Good evening foodies,

After having a tough week, the only thing to comfort me was heading to my favorite corner in the house; I’ve spent the whole weekend making recipes for the blog… I truely enjoyed the time spent in the kitchen especially after seing the results.  I’m trying to step up the game without loosing my signature, that being said, I went again for a fully moody dark feed and kept all my pictures as simple as my recipes.

I’m not an expert in photography so I won’t be able to tell you about the technical stuffs, but if someone asks me why do I choose to shoot like this? I’ll simply say that it makes food shine in the darkness, it makes the dishes look honest and real with a vintage hint! But moreover  It feels nostalgic and warm, you know it’s just beautiful…

The star of the first dish is green peas, this emerald is a versatile veggie and you can make a lot number of recipes with it…I went for a soup ’cause nothing embodies the fresh, light, green-ness of the winter-spring season quite like a simple warm green peas soup with garlic and “Jben”; Jben is a Moroccan fresh cheese, similar to ricotta, but with a smoother creamier texture… I lke to serve it with all  kind of recipes or just spread it on toast.

This is a beautiful vibrant spring soup,  made with those green little powerhouses of nutrition. Green peas are good for weight management,blood sugar regulation and contain countless vitamines…It is soothing both to the eyes, the body and the soul!

Check out this awesome soup preparation with a nice flavor combination, A lovely green peas soup for all green lovers!
