Smoky Pea Soup
1⁄2 cup (about 3 slices or 2 ounces) chopped Canadian bacon
1 teaspoon olive oil
1⁄2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 (15 1⁄2-ounce) can fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup 1% milk
1 teaspoon dried sage
1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
3⁄4 pound (about 2 cups) shelled edamame
Salt and ground black pepper
6 tablespoons plain, fat-free Greek-style yogurt
2 tablespoons chopped scallions or chives
In a small nonstick skillet, lightly brown the bacon. Set aside.
In a 3-quart nonstick saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add onion and
cook for about 4 minutes, or until softened but not browned. Add garlic and
cook for about 1 minute longer, but don’t allow garlic to brown. Add the broth,
milk, sage, cumin, and salt and bring to a boil. Add the edamame and reduce the
heat to low. Simmer for about 3 minutes. Carefully pour the mixture into a
blender and puree until smooth.
Return the puree to the saucepan and stir in the bacon. Season with salt and
pepper. Pour the hot soup into 6 small bowls. Garnish with a dollop of yogurt
and sprinkle with scallions or chives.
