While this soup may seem virtuous with a trifecta of healthful green vegetables, including green peas, baby spinach and asparagus, it tastes anything but. Fragrant herbs and green onions add zing, and a dollop of crème fraîche adds a touch of indulgence to the soup.
Fragrant spices including turmeric, coriander and curry powder lend deep flavor to this soup without having to simmer on the stove top for hours. A drizzle of harissa, a Moroccan-style blend, adds a kick of spice, but you can easily omit it if you can’t find it.
Using jarred red peppers is a clever shortcut to bring deep roasted flavors to this vibrant soup without taking the time to roast them yourself.
