Spring Pea Soup
Andrea Beaman is a natural foods chef, thyroid expert, and television host dedicated to alternative healing and sustainable living. Try her spring pea soup made with fresh or frozen peas.
Organic, frozen mixed vegetables are good for quick-and-easy stir-fries and soups. While I highly encourage you to prepare fresh food from local and seasonal products, if you don’t have time or access, count on frozen vegetables to help you out in the kitchen.

In a large pot, heat oil and sauté onions 1 to 2 minutes. Add green peas, rosemary, stock, and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
