This soup is so very good on a chilly spring afternoon. The flavors of lemon combined with fresh mint make the soup taste bright and snappy, and then the savory broth is there to warm the soul.

Recipe Ingredients for Lemony Spring Pea Soup

1 medium onion
2 cups chicken
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups water
3 fruit+2-1/8"+dia lemons
3 tablespoons mint
2 cups brown rice
2 cups peas
1 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Lemony Spring Pea Soup

  1. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions with a pinch of salt and cook until the onions have softened and are on the verge of turning brown.

  2. Pour in the stock and the water and bring to a gentle boil. Add half of the lemon juice, the lemon zest, 2 tablespoons of mint, and 1 teaspoon of salt and stir. Stir in the cooked rice and peas, and let the soup come back to a gentle simmer.

  3. Give the soup a taste. If you'd like a little more lemon or mint, add a little more in. (Personally, I go for the full amount of both.) When you're happy with what you taste, take the soup off the heat and serve it up.

  4. Leftovers will keep refrigerated for several days.
