Can I make pea soup without a sieve?

Every recipe I've seen says to push the soup through a sieve until dry vegetable matter is left behind. I want pea soup but don't have a sieve! I have a strainer if that would work? Or could I just blend it all up and leave the 'bits' in the finished soup?

A blender will be fine.

I've never sieved pea soup.

Fantastic thank you. I was looking at the Felicity cloake and the ottolenghi recipes.

I don't have the patience to push things through a sieve. If it doesn't work eaten as is or blended, it doesn't get made here. The bits they're suggesting you sieve out sound like useful fibre to me, so you're actually going for the healthier option by ignoring that. grin

Never sieved any soup. Pea and dried mint I did recently and it was lush

I made pea, mint and spinach soup yesterday, I chopped up the spinach And removed some of the tougher stalks, but the blender does all the work for you, no sieve needed! I do it all in one saucepan too . Brilliant!

I make an unusual combination. Lettuce pea and pear with veg stock from a cube. It's yummy
Blended, never used a sieve.
