Fresh Green Pea and Romaine Soup

It's Spring here and it's a great time to sample some of the fresh garden vegetables that are popping first from the soil.  This recipe for a refreshing Spring soup comes from our Church's Vegan Cooking School collection.

In VitaMix carafe (or other blender) add the following:
4 C. shelled Green Peas (thaw if frozen)
2 Romaine Lettuce Hearts, chopped
2 T. Rice Miso
1 tsp. Basil
4 C. Water or Vegetable Stock
If using a Vitamix, slowly bring up the speed to the highest speed and whirl 3-4 minutes until warmed.  Serve with a dollop of thick cashew cream.

Wasn't overly fussy with this soup, but I have had worse. Probably won't make again though.

I actually did not add mushrooms and opted to not puree the tomatoes and it came out great!
