Pea & Mint Soup

Pea and mint soup - gluten free and dairy free

This is possibly one of the easiest soups to make, there are only a few ingredients used but it is full of flavour.  Plus pea and mint is such a fabulous combination.

This soup freezes incredibly well so I often make a large batch and freeze individual portions.

Green peas are full of anti-inflammatory nutrients and anti-oxidants.  Peas are rich in vitamin C so great for the immunity and their insoluble fibre is good for gut health.

Ingredients

-1 tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil

-1 red onion, roughly chopped

-600g frozen peas

-a generous handful of mint leaves

-700ml stock (use vegetable to keep soup vegetarian but chicken stock works well too)

-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.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or store in the freezer, thawing fully before reheating.

Enjoy.
