Peas and spinach soup with herbs and coconut milk

A green vegetable soup might not be as appealing as most others, but trust me this is good. If my husband and friend who are absolute meat lovers lapped this up in no time, you know it’s got to be good. This is basically putting a pot of water to boil and throwing in peas, spinach, chilli, garlic (lots of it!), ginger and herbs. Later laced with a dash of coconut milk to lighten it up. It’s quick to make and from the looks of it, very healthy.

spinach soup

Yield: 2 cupfuls

Prep + cooking time: 15 mins


Green peas (frozen) – 1 cup

Spinach – two handfuls (really hard to give exact measurements here)

Green chilli – 1

Garlic – 4-5 cloves

Ginger – 1/2 inch piece

Herbs like coriander, basil, thyme or anything you may have – as much or as less as you like them

Coconut milk – 1/4 cup

Water – 2 cups give or take

Salt to taste


Bring the water to a boil and throw in all the ingredients.

Let it simmer for 7-8 mins.

Drain and keep the water.

Blitz it into a puree.

Put it back on the heat adding the saved water along with the coconut milk.

Do a taste check at this point and adjust salt if you have to.

Serve hot!
