Pea and mint soup

Pea and mint soup

This is probably the easiest soup in the world to make. You throw everything in a pot, leave it for 20 minutes, then come back and puree it up. It really is as easy as that, and the soup itself tastes really fresh and zingy.

Ingredients

1 bunch spring onions, chopped

1 medium potato, peeled and diced

1 garlic clove, minced

1tbsp vegetable oil

850ml vegetable stock

500g frozen peas

4tbsp chopped fresh mint

1tbsp sugar

150ml lo-fat yoghurt

Salt, to season

Toasted pita breads, to serve

Method

Heat the vegetable oil in a large soup pot. Stir in the minced garlic and fry for 1 minute. Add the spring onions, potato,frozen peas, mint, sugar, stock and yoghurt. Stir well, turn heat down to medium and let it simmer away for 20 minutes.

After the 20 minutes, turn off the heat and using a food processor or blender, puree the soup to a smooth consistancy. Serve up with toasted pita breads for dipping.

Serves 4
