Free & Easy Organic Green Pea Soup

Pea soup. Sounds disgusting, doesn’t it? It does to me, anyway. Still, it was free, so I thought I’d give it a go.

I opened the tin and had a sniff. It smelt like peas. I suppose it would really, but I wasn’t expecting it to. I heated it up in the microwave (on checking the instructions I was surprised to see that it was quicker on the hob but I didn’t want to wash a saucepan) and had another sniff. It didn’t smell of peas anymore, it didn’t really smell of anything.

I had a taste. Pea soup is fantastic, why didn’t anyone tell me this before?! The taste is hard to describe (probably because I am rubbish at describing tastes), kind of earthy without a strong taste of peas. The texture was fine – not thin and watery, but just right and perfect for someone like me who likes to drink soup out of a mug so I have a hand spare for mousing around the internet.

Free & Easy Organic Pea Soup costs around £1.40 and is available from major supermarkets and health food shops. It’s vegetarian and vegan and contains 96 calories per 400g can (which apparently is 2 servings, unless you’re like me and have the can to yourself). For more information, visit

I am now a pea soup convert. Can pea soup be made from frozen peas?
