Broccoli and Pea Potage with Thyme

Broccoli and Pea Potage with Thyme (soup): I love soup! Soup can be so healthy and so satisfying. This broccoli and pea potage (potage: French pottage: meaning potted dish, thick soup, stew, or porridge) is filled with veggies and the addition of lentils bumps up the protein as well as the fiber content of the soup.

You’ve seen me talk about how much I love lentils before. I think they’re a great vegan option. And, they’re low in calories. Want to learn more about the benefits of lentils? Take a gander at The World’s Healthiest Foods. Also, take a look at some of the other lentil dishes I’m made.

I’ve garnished the soup with some chives and chive flowers from the garden. The flowers have a sharp spicy flavor that goes well with the soup.
