Special Diet




Main Ingredient


Entertaining, Holidays


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 large shallots minced
  • 4 cups gluten free vegetable broth
  • 4 cups 20 ounces frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1 Tablespoon San-J Tamari Soy Sauce
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons matcha – divided
  • 1 ripe avocado cut in half and pitted
  • Juice of 1 lime about 2 tablespoons
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves plus more for garnish if desired
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds


  • In a Dutch oven or stock pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until soft but not browned, about 2 minutes. Add the vegetable broth, peas, San-J Tamari Soy Sauce, and 1 teaspoon matcha. Raise heat and bring to a boil. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes or until the peas are heated through. 
  • Pour the mixture into a blender or food processor, scoop in the flesh of the avocado, add the lime juice and ½ cup mint leaves. Process until smooth. (You may need to process the soup in batches.) Can be made up to a day ahead at this point and stored covered in the refrigerator.  
  • Before serving, lightly whip the cream with ¼ teaspoon matcha. 
  • Soup can be served hot or cold. If serving hot, reheat gently over medium heat.  Ladle soup into soup bowls, drizzle with the match cream and top with 1 tablespoon of pomegranate seeds and sprigs of mint if desired.
