Spring soup

Spring is on the way soup

Spring soupThis gorgeous green soup is bursting with a fresh flavour that suggests Spring is on its way. I guess it really is a cross between my easy pea and mint soup and my Spring Green Soup but it was delicious, good for you and nice and easy too so I thought I would share the recipe.

So to make this Spring is on the way soup you will need:

3 cups of frozen pea’s

3 medium onions chopped

1 courgette chopped

1 small head of Spring greens sliced

1/2 head of broccoli

1 green pepper chopped

2-3 medium-sized potatoes chopped

2 garlic cloves crushed

A good handful of fresh mint chopped

1 tablespoon  of olive oil

1 1/2 pints of vegetable stock

Black pepper to season

To make simply:

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan
  • Add the onions and cook until they are just turning golden and softening.
  • Now add the potatoes, courgette and pepper and cook for a further 5 minutes until they begin to soften too.
  • Add the garlic and spring greens continue cooking for 3 more minutes.
  • Put the stock in the pan and simmer for 10 minutes, add the frozen pea’s and half of the mint.
  • Cook until the pea’s and other vegetables are cooked which should be about 5 minutes.
  • Add the remainder of the mint and season with black pepper.
  • Blend half of the soup to create the gorgeous green colour but leave some of the vegetables whole which makes for a more satisfying and filling soup. You can blend it all of course if you like a smooth soup.

 

Serve with either a dollop of natural yoghurt or some grated cheese.

I hope you enjoy this fresh tasting soup recipe as much as we did – Ali x
