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.
-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.
