This soya bean and pea soup is a gorgeously green pea and bean soup that is easy to make and healthy.

It's also a really easy alternative to traditional pea soup, and just as tasty. The best part is that the main ingredients are from frozen, so you only have to buy a few fresh items to make a whole meal. Find soya beans in the frozen beans aisle of larger supermarkets - they're often called edamame beans, or edamame soya beans. They are a really useful source of whole protein, meaning they contain all the essential amino acids the body needs. Most plant proteins are not 'whole', so soya beans are particularly great for vegetarians and vegans. This soup is suitable for both. It only takes 20 minutes to make and is only 129 calories per serving.


  • 200g frozen soya beans (also called edamame beans)
  • 200g frozen peas
  • 500ml hot vegetable stock
  • 6 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 small bunch basil leaves
  • 1 handful (50g) rocket leaves
  • 300ml light soya milk




  1. Put the frozen soya beans, frozen peas, vegetable stock and spring onions in a pan. Bring to the boil and simmer for five mins.
  2. Add the basil and rocket leaves and light soya milk. Separate the mixture in to two bowls. Blend the mixture in one of the bowls until it's smooth, leave the other bowl of soup chunky. Combine both mixtures and warm through to serve.
