Cream of peas soup

This creamy soup is perfect  as an appetizer on a chilly winter night .Green peas are high in protein and keep your body warm during the cold season. They also work as antioxidants in detoxifying your body. I prefer to make this soup with fresh green peas and not the canned or frozen ones.
