homemade instant pea soup mix

I’ve mentioned Bob’s Red Mill 3 Minute Pea Soup recipe before, but what if you could take the soup mix with you to work for a quick lunch? Well. You can! At the end of the post, I’ll give you a couple links to ingredients.

You will need green pea flour and a little sandwich-sized ziplock bag.

For one big bowl of soup, add 3 Tbsp of green pea flour to the ziplock bag. Just 3 Tbsp contains 4g fiber (16% of what you need for the day), 4g protein, and 6% iron.

Then add some sort of vegetarian bouillon granules – I buy this kind at the Asian market (chicken flavored, but without any animal products) and use 1 tsp.

Add whatever seasonings you’d like, to taste. I prefer garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, a dash of cayenne pepper, and 2 tsp nutritional yeast.

Seal the ziplock bag and shake it up to mix the ingredients. Then I like to open the corner of the bag, press out the air, and reseal for easy storage in my reused takeout box.

Next, I fill my bowl with water (should be about 2 Cups, I just eyeball it) and heat it in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes (if you have a kettle you can heat the water that way, if you prefer to avoid the microwave). I actually only do mine for 2 minutes because I start with hot water from the dispenser on our coffee machine.

Careful, your bowl will be hot!!! Add the contents of the bag – do it slowly at first because if the water’s really hot, adding the mix could cause it to bubble and spill over.

Stir, stir, stir. Mash big lumps with the back of your spoon. Don’t mind the little ones, they taste good 🙂

On Amazon, you can buy four 24oz packages of Green Pea Flour for less than $20.

And you can buy a six pack of Massel Vegetable Bouillon Granules for seasoning. That should last year maybe a couple years! (Or just find it in a store near you and buy one container at a time…)

By the way, this is oil free and perfect for a strict fasting day!
