Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. I use minimal oil and no artificial colors.

Green Pea and Carrot Vegan Salad or Gravy Soup

Make This Yummy Salad in 18 Minutes!

I had some fresh green peas lying around my kitchen, and they tempted me to make this awesome salad. You can use frozen peas instead of fresh ones if that's what you have. This is a perfect winter soup because it makes you feel warm.

I used coconut oil in this recipe. If you don't want to make it vegan, use butter instead of coconut oil.

This salad can also be made as a "gravy soup" because of its texture and consistency.

If you retain a thick consistency, use it as a salad. If thin, consume as a soup. Both are equally delightful. Enjoy the taste.
