pea soup, feture

Let’s go back to the kitchen and make meals easier!

Do you have frozen peas ?? I am sure you do .. with a few other ingredients I have made this classic soup as effortless as possible.

You can’t beat the colour and flavour of this soup. I truly enjoy making this delicious recipe during these very cold days and I hope you will too.

Ingredients

  • 500gm frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 800ml light chicken stock
  • 1 bunch of garden mint
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch of caster sugar

Method

  1. Heat the butter in a large pan, add the onion and shallot and sweat gently until soft but not coloured.
  2. Add the peas and the stock and bring quickly to the boil.  Cook until the peas are slightly soft to the touch.
  3. Place the mixture into a blender adding the garlic, sugar, mint, salt and pepper.
  4. Blend until totally smooth.
  5. Put the soup back into the pan and bring to the boil and serve.
  6. Garnish the soup with a mint sprig and a dot of crème fraiche.

Tips

  • I used homemade chicken stock but you can use the low salt ones sold in the supermarkets.
  • I am a big fan of frozen peas because they cook well and keep their beautiful green colour.
