Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsweetened rice milk
  • 1/2 cup cashew butter
  • 15-to 16- ounce can great northern or cannellini beans drained and rinsed, or one 12.3-ounce package firm silken tofu
  • 16- ounce bag frozen green peas thawed and steamed until just tender (see note)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons good-quality curry powder to taste
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons minced fresh or jarred ginger
  • 1 medium tomato diced
  • 1 to 2 scallions minced
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro or parsley
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice or to taste
  • Dried hot red pepper flakes or sriracha sauce to taste optional
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Combine 1/2 cup of the rice milk with the cashew butter, silken tofu, and half of the peas in the container of a food processor. Process until smoothly pureed.
  • To serve at room temperature or chilled, transfer the puree to a serving container, then stir in the remaining ingredients, including the reserved peas.
  • Let stand at room temperature or in the refrigerator for an hour or two, if time allows, to let the flavors blend.
  • To serve hot or warm, transfer the puree to a small soup pot. Add all the remaining ingredients, stir together, and heat until just warmed through or piping hot, but there’s no need to bring to a boil.
  • Whether serving cold or hot, adjust the consistency with a little more rice milk if the soup is too thick, and adjust all the seasonings — lime juice, hot stuff, salt, and pepper — to your taste.

Note: In the spring and summer, if you’re a gardener or a community farm member, you can, of course, make this with fresh peas. It takes some time and patience to arrive at a pound of fresh peas, but if you have them, it’s extra-tasty!
