Lazy Pea Soup
- ½ onion, chopped
- 1 tsp Very Lazy Garlic
- 1 pint of frozen peas
- 1 vegetable or chicken stock cube
- 2 pints boiling water
- 1 tsp dried mint
- 2 tbsp fat free Greek strained yoghurt, or creme fraiche
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper
Pour the tablespoon of olive oil into a large saucepan placed on a medium heat. Add the chopped onions and fry for a few minutes, before adding the garlic and frying for another couple of minutes.
Measure out your peas by pouring them into your measuring jug, then pour into the pan, followed by the stock, boiling water and mint.
Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the yoghurt and whiz to a smooth soup with a handheld blender. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
Tip: This is great with bacon and croutons. Before making the soup fry 1 rasher of finely chopped bacon and 1 slice of bread chopped into squares in a tablespoon of olive oil. Once crispy leave on a sheet of kitchen roll. Sprinkle over the soup before serving.
The croutons will float and the bacon will sink, leaving a nice surprise at the bottom of the bowl!
