Broccoli and green peas soup

Winters arrive, and fresh green pea pods enter the markets. The sweetness of the peas and the brassic boldness of the broccoli hold each other in check, and the yield is a lovely green soup that gives us the necessary warmth in winters. You can use frozen peas for the rest of the year and let this delicious soup satisfy your taste buds.
