Wilted Greens Soup with Crème Fraîche


This Wilted Greens Soup with Crème Fraîche is my favorite way to use up those greens which aren’t crisp or fresh enough for a salad, but work perfectly in a soup. Waste not want not, right?!

This soup is super easy to make too. Start by sautéing onions in butter with some thyme leaves. Add potato cubes and sauté for two more minutes. Pour in broth before adding wilted greens, frozen peas and some sugar. Once the soup is cooked, blend it in a food processor until smooth. Serve garnished with crème fraîche and freshly chopped herbs.

To make Wilted Greens Soup with Crème Fraîche, you will need the following ingredients:

So, how to make Wilted Greens Soup with Crème Fraîche?

Steps to make Wilted Greens Soup with Crème Fraîche


Cook onion


Melt 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a medium saucepan. Fry ½ a chopped onion and leaves from 3 sprigs of thyme in the butter for about 5 minutes, until the onion is soft and translucent.


Add potato


Add the chopped potato to the pot and cook it, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes.


Pour in broth


Pour 4 cups of broth over the potato and onion and bring it to a boil. Simmer for 8-10 minutes until the potato is tender.


Add greens, peas and sugar


Mix in 4 cups of greens, 1½ cups of frozen peas and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Remove the saucepan from the heat and leave to sit for 10 minutes. This will give the greens time to soften.


Blend soup


Blend the soup in a food processor or blender until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.



Serve this soup in warm bowls topped with crème fraîche and freshly chopped herbs.

Super simple to make this recipe and it's affordable too so I'm satified.

Patricia Batliner

Love this healthy soup more than anything in life, will totally be making it again.

Charlize Fretty

When I first saw this I thought I'd hate it because peas are normally not very tasty period but it was actually FIRE.


My kids aren't really a fan of this soup, they much prefer things like the garlic butter meatballs instead of a liquid meal, but me and the partner ate it right up! Brilliant :)

Anahi Betbeze

Licked the bowl clean! It was too good to leave anything in it.

Jacquelyn Cuomo

I really like the flavour of this it's unique and i've never made anything like this before.

Patience Ginart

Freshly made and fresh tasting, what more can I say? Perfect soup to make you feel like a healthy eater.

Kailynn Teso

Wanted to add a bit more to this so I decided to put some tomatoes in it and the small soup noodles.

Nathalie Kaczkowski

This was kinda a hard recipe to make in my opinion just because the blender can be quite the hassel at times but it was worth it in the end since me and my family enjoyed the meal.

Arely Baab

Bomb soup! Made this and some cheesy garlic bread on the same day for lunch.

Jazlynn Mhoon

I really like the flavour of this it's unique and i've never made anything like this before.

Anika Bubela

Happy stomach and a happy life thanks to this delicious bowl of green wilted soup, I had mine with some black bread.

Evalyn Ferge

This and the chickpea soup are my favorite soups of all time on this website, so flavourful.

Ayana Sadkowski

Had it cold for work the next day and it was still really delicious couldn't ask for more.

Emmy Skorski

Anyone know where I can get the creme fraiche?..:(

Mariella Eckrote

Avoided adding the thymes cause it always makes things taste too similar to grass, but without it the wilted soup is just fine.

Lillyanna Carawan

Would say to avoid adding anything else to this dish cause peas don't go well with a lot of things, tried adding sourcream and it just tasted funny so skipped out on it the second time around.

Emelia Cleghorn

Great recipe will be making this wilted green pea soup every week atleast once.

Promise Panchot

Took me a while to make this and it was sort've grainy, edible and enjoyable at the same time though.

Katalina Simoneau

I was trying to find soups and meals to go with my healthy diet and this is perfect for it, thanks so much it tasted fantastic.

Chandler Treff

Is it weird that I squeezed a bit of lime in this? I felt like it needed to be a tad more zesty but it tasted really yummy in the end either way.


Yummy! Healthy & delicious soup!
