Garden Pea and Smokey Sausage Soup, made from scratch and full of flavor

Here is a lovely easy recipe for Garden Pea and Smokey Sausage Soup. This is a delicious recipe and full of great flavours.
For this recipe I've used my basic How To Make A Creamy Soup recipe and adapted it to change the flavors and color, resulting in a very delicious soup!
I've used frozen garden peas to keep the bright green color and some of my favorite Smoked German sausage. You can also use smoked ham, or any smoked meat. The flavour combination is delicious!

I love soup! It's so versatile and you can use whatever is in season. Of course with this garden pea and smoky sausage soup, it's possible to make this any time of the year, especially since peas are readily available frozen, and the quality of frozen peas is very good. Often, smoked sausage is vacuum sealed and will keep in your store cupboard for quite a while, so together with the frozen garden peas, you can stock your pantry so you have these ingredients to hand.

So let's get straight to the recipe and see how we make our garden pea and smokey sausage soup. Please enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 medium potato peeled & cubed roughly (if you want a really thick soup, add 2 potatoes, but this is a nice consistency!)
4 cups / 950 ml of vegetable stock
1.5 cups / 350 ml milk
1 medium onion chopped
1 Large Leek, chopped or 2 sticks of chopped celery
1 lb / 500 g Frozen Garden Peas. (Do not use jar or canned peas as the colour is a dull green and they don't taste as fresh!)
2 Cloves Minced Garlic
500 g / 1 lb of your favourite Smoked sausage or ham.
1 tablespoon of butter (optional)
Salt & pepper to taste.(at the end)

Garden Pea and Smokey Sausage Soup

Instructions:

1. In the large pan, you will use for the soup, saute the onion, leeks/celery and garlic until soft. Please do NOT burn or brown the leeks etc as they will turn bitter. Then add everything except the milk to the pan and cook until potato and vegetables are soft and cooked through.
*** To clean leeks, Cut the top and bottom off, then run a sharp knife lengthways down the whole leek, cutting 3/4 deep through the leek. Then run under a tap and wash any soil away, in between the layers.

saute to soften

2. Blanche the peas in some hot water then transfer to cold water, have just enough cold water to cover the surface of the peas. If you don't place them in cold water, the peas won't keep their bright green colour. Then add the water and peas to a blender and puree. Return the puree to a bowl. You will use the blender again so don't wash it just yet!

3. When the contents of the Soup pan are all cooked through, transfer everything to the blender and puree, then return to the stove, and add your sliced sausages, peas, milk and bring to a gentle simmer.

4. Once brought back to simmer, add 1 tablespoon butter (to give it a nice shine), salt & pepper to season.
Taste the soup first before you add the seasoning! I didn't need to add any extra salt in my soup as the sausage was already a salty enough.
