Chilled soups always seem so luxurious to me, so gourmet.  I’m not really sure why since they are so incredibly easy to make.  I never really had a lot of chilled soups growing up but discovered a love of them while on a cruise.  Each night was a different chilled soup, some with vegetables, some with fruit and some with both.  Maybe because I associate chilled soups with vacations, they feel so decadent to me.  As soon as asparagus came into season I knew I was going to make soup.  The fresh English peas were calling to me so I threw them in to.  It made the most scrumptious soup, Chilled Asparagus Pea Soup was born.

It is no wonder I thought about a chilled soup.  We have booked a cruise for the summer.  I cannot wait.  I feel like a little kid wishing everyday was the day we go.  After all the stress we have had and continue to have with my husband’s heart, some rest and relaxation is on order.  Before our child, we had been on many cruises.  We didn’t really care where we cruised to; we just loved being on a ship and being totally spoiled for a week.  A few years ago we took our daughter on one.  She took to it like a fish in water.  This time we are keeping it a surprise and will probably tell her the week before we go.  She is going to be so excited.  She already has the travel bug and is quite the world traveler.  When she was 3-year-old, we went to India for my brother-in-law’s wedding.  Last year we took her to Singapore to see her paternal grandparents.  Thank goodness we had a lot of airline miles we could cash in for the tickets.

I was wondering if my daughter and hubby would like this soup.  My hubby hates peas, with a capital H.  He is Ok with fresh peas so I thought I would give it a whirl.  My daughter is picky about veggies now.   I was very happy to see that both of them devoured the soup.  It tastes so fresh and light.  It will make a perfect al fresco dinner with a sandwich or salad.  It would also be perfect for Mother’s Day.  The asparagus and peas blend so well together and all the flavors marry to make a perfectly balanced soup.  It is like a bit of Spring in every bite.  Give the soup a whirl.  I bet your family will love it too.

  1. I first tried chilled soup on a cruise, too, and fell in love! I'm a soup fanatic but it just is way too hot in the summer to eat it, unless it's nice and chilled. This sounds tasty!

      Thanks Kelly. This soup would be great in the summer too while the asparagus is still good.
  2. Thanks for sharing on Show Me Your Plaid Monday's!!!
  3. This soup sounds lovely! Chilled soups make me feel fancy, too! Lovely photos! :)
  4. Asparagus... or Spargel as we call it here in Germany... is most commonly white here! I think we're going to have to try your recipe with the white spargel! Great recipe, thank you!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Betsy, I bet the white asparagus will make this soup a lovely colour. Hope you enjoy it.
  5. How funny! I also discovered chilled soups on a cruise and fell in love. They really do seem decadent, don't they? Like they are more special than other soups since they have the uniqueness of being chilled.

      Hi Sarah, I always look forward to trying the chilled soups on a cruise. It was fun to recreate one at home.
