Today, we are diving into a bowl of creamy, dreamy goodness that's perfect for a light lunch or cosy dinner. This mint and pea soup is like a warm hug in a bowl, bright with the fresh flavours of peas and mint, and creamy without a drop of dairy. Served with slices of hearty sourdough, this soup is a plant-based dream come true!

 

Recipe:


Serves: 4


Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes

 

Ingredients:


- 1 tablespoon olive oil

- 1 onion, finely chopped

- 2 cloves of garlic, minced

- 500g frozen peas

- A small bunch of fresh mint leaves, chopped

- 1 litre vegetable stock

- Salt and black pepper to taste

- Vegan cream for drizzling

- Slices of sourdough bread for serving


 

Method:


1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until the onion is translucent.


2. Add the frozen peas, chopped mint, and vegetable stock to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 15 minutes until the peas are tender.


3. Once the peas are cooked, blend the soup using a handheld blender or in batches in a countertop blender until smooth. If the soup is too thick, add a bit more vegetable stock or water.
