Protein-rich pea soup

Do you know that? Those days when your planning, your exercise regime and your good routines all go to shit? On such a day there is really only one thing you should eat. That's right: soup. To be precise, this protein-rich pea soup with spinach and pistachio pesto. 

This vegetarian, protein-rich pea soup with spinach and pistachio pesto is comfort food par excellence. A bowl of comfort for the moments when you need it, but of course also just a delicious meal on a stormy autumn day. With ingredients such as peas and spinach, this soup also gives your body the nutrients it needs. Consider important vitamins, minerals and complex carbohydrates. And complete proteins, of course thanks to Live Puri natural protein powder; a protein powder based on milk protein with a neutral, but very creamy taste or ounces vegan natural protein powder (we used this in this recipe). Talk about enriching your soup!

Because of its high protein content and large amount of fiber, you can consider this protein-rich pea soup as a meal in itself. It's quite filling! But a piece of good (whole wheat) bread is never out of place next to a bowl of soup.
