Ingredients

Soup: 
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO, plus some for drizzling
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper 
  • 6 to 8 cups chicken, or vegetable stock, or a combo of both
  • 2 cups green split peas
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced
Flatbread Chips:
  • Naan, pita or flatbread
  • Olive oil spray
  • Salt
  • Dried oregano
Garnishes:
  • Greek feta cheese crumbles, for garnish
  • Cumin, for garnish
  • Paprika, for garnish

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

For the soup: Heat the EVOO in a soup pot over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the stock and peas, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook until just tender, 20 minutes. Remove half the soup and puree with the mint and parsley until smooth in a food processor or high powered blender. Return the puree to the pot, and stir in the lemon juice. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper. Cool and store for a make-ahead meal. 

For the flatbread: Arrange the flatbread on a wire rack over a baking sheet, spray with the olive oil on both sides and season with salt and oregano. Roast in the oven to toasted and crisp. Store at room temperature in an airtight container. 

Reheat the soup over medium heat. Serve the soup garnished with feta crumbles and a light sprinkle of cumin and paprika, a drizzle of EVOO and flatbread chips.
