I went foraging in one of my local parks this week for fresh mint and I had a bag of fresh peas in the fridge so thought I’d make a nice light pea & mint soup which can be served either hot or chilled.
Leaves from 2 sprigs of mint, chopped (alternatively 1tsp of dried mint)
2 cups of shelled peas (you could use frozen)
1 onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1 tsp of vegetable bouillon
Cook the onion and garlic in a pan in a little water for around 5 minutes until they start to cook.
Add the peas.
Pour water in to the pan until it just covers the contents.
Add the bouillon, mint and salt and pepper to taste.
Bring to the boil and then turn down heat and simmer with the lid on for 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool before blending.
Serve hot or chilled
