Souper Greens

Soup glorious soup!

The beauty of soup is that you can use what you have. This soup was originally going to be a pea and mint one, but I ended up getting some gargantuan courgettes from the Spanish supermarket and needed to blitz them into something good.

To create 3/4 servings, you will need:

  • 150 g onion
  • 1 or 2 cloves of garlic (we are garlic monsters and always add plenty)
  • 300g chopped courgette
  • 500g frozen peas
  • About 15 mint leaves
  • 400ml – 500ml vegetable stock (add around 300ml then add more at the end if you like a thick soup)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Simply soften the onions and garlic in the oil, then add the other vegetables and stock.
  2. Simmer for a good 15/20 minutes with the pan lid on until all the ingredients are soft.
  3. Blitz up with the handheld or food processor
  4. Season as you like it and enjoy really hot
  5. This one is great with some shaved parmesan and ripped mint leaves on top

A 300ml portion contains approximately 125 calories (before any parmesan or extras)
