Easy Garden Pea Soup

July 28, 2013

On the mend

There is nothing like a good soup to help you through your body’s natural recovery mode.  My poor feet were aching and my body in general really wasn’t feeling 100%, so I made a quick batch of nice pea soup and relaxed for the afternoon and evening.  I do not usually give in to resting, but when I do I make sure I have good food and no check lists in sight.  You can’t go wrong with a lightly seasoned pea soup.

This recipe was adapted from Ainsley Harriott’s just five ingredients (BBC Books, 2009).

Garden Pea


1 medium onion (finely chopped), 1 tbsp sunflower oil,  450g frozen peas, 8 fresh mint leaves, 750ml vegetable stock, salt and pepper.


1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat.
2. Fry the onion until soft.
3. Add the frozen peas and mint.
4. Stir for 4 minutes, when the peas are well coated add the stock.
5. Bring to the boil.
6. Leave to simmer for 3 minutes and simmer to taste.
