Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat broiler. In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add shelled peas, carrots, onions, ginger, and coriander. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in vegetable stock; bring to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add pea pods; simmer 2 minutes more.

  • Meanwhile, line a shallow baking pan with foil and place bread cubes in pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 1 minute or until toasted. Sprinkle bread with cheese. Broil for 1 minute more or until cheese melts and starts to brown. Serve soup topped with cheesy croutons and pea shoots, if desired.


If using frozen peas, add to broth mixture with the pea pods.
