You can serve this soup up chunky or smooth! The addition of potato helps keep this soup creamy and rich along side the addition of milk. When asparagus is in season, simply chop fresh asparagus stalks and substitute for the peas.
For a smooth version of this soup, use an immersion blender right in your pot. For a velve-ty sooth soup puree in blender or food processor until smooth. Then strain through a fine mesh sieve if desired. (This will remove the pea skin if bothersome.)
This soup can be served alongside your favourite sandwich cup style or enjoyed as a light lunch with a hearty portion alongside a crisp salad.
Bone is a living tissue, that is constantly renewing and repairing itself from everyday wear and tear. However, like many nutrients, calcium is absorbed less effectively as we age. Try out our calcium calculator to see if you are getting enough in your daily diet.
* The percentage of calcium is based on the Osteoporosis Canada’s daily calcium requirement for people under 50 years of age of 1000 mg.
Osteoporosis Canada’s position on nutrition for healthy bones focuses on calcium and vitamin D while stressing a well-balanced diet which includes fiber and whole grains, vitamins and minerals and protein.
