Pea and Mint Soup

I must admit I do enjoy a good bowl of soup. This one is simple yet tasty. I tend to make a batch of this up and freeze individual portions so I’ve always got some on hand when I need a quick meal. This soup is also delicious cold, particularly at the moment with the hot weather we’re having.

Ingredients

-1 tbsp. olive oil or rapeseed oil

-1 red onion, roughly chopped

-600g frozen peas

-a generous handful of mint leaves

-700ml vegetable stock, either homemade or from a cube

-salt & pepper to taste

How to Make

In a large saucepan heat the oil and add the chopped onion.  Saute until the onion is soft.

Add the peas and stock.  Cover saucepan with a lid, bring to the boil then turn down to simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the mint leaves and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

Blend until smooth – if you prefer really smooth soup, pass through a sieve.

Season with salt and pepper to taste – you may not need to add any salt as some stock cubes and shop bought stocks can be quite salty, best to check the soup first before adding any.
