Spinach, Fresh Pea, and Garlic Soup

Palak Green Pea Garlic Soup

A Lovely Deep-Green, Spicy, and Garlicky Soup

Spinach (palak) is my favorite green veggie. It is high in vitamins, iron, dietary fiber, copper, and proteins. Fresh peas (green peas) also have similar properties. They blend very well in this spinach, fresh pea, and garlic soup.

To make this, I used garlic, cumin seeds, pepper corns, milk, and tomatoes, along with spinach and fresh peas. This awesome green soup is naturally flavored and spicy. Winter calls for a spicy and refreshing soup like this!

Making this dish was simple and easy. I made it in thirty minutes.

Let me now share the detailed recipe with you.
