I was quite intrigued when I noticed Trader Joe`s was carrying some premade soups which were in the refrigerator section instead of in the canned good aisle. I was even more intrigued when I spotted and picked up the Trader Joe`s Organic Pea Soup. Thanks to giving into old `childhood food fears` I learned that I really love pea soup so if I can find a convenient version to have whenever the mood strikes, it`s a win for me.
Ideally the pea soup I`m used to has bits of ham in it, but this is a vegetarian/vegan version. But what sold me the most was the fact that this soup is very thick. I`ve had pea soups in the past where they`re a little on the runnier side and that`s just not enjoyable. This is night, thick and hearty while having a bit of texture to it. It`s undoubtedly a step in the right direction if you`ve tried the canned version of this soup in store (you can see that review here: http://shannonslifestyle.blogspot.com/2014/02/trader-joes-organic-split-pea-soup.html).
I find it`s difficult to really explain how pea soup tastes. If you`ve had it before, you know the flavor. It`s peas ... it`s carrots ... and it`s whatever flavoring you put into it. Since there`s no meat it`s straight peas with slight sweetness from the carrots. It`s very good and pleasing on the pallet. Definitely one of my favorite pea soups that I have tried (outside of homemade).
