Alternative title: Pea soup…Not to be mistaken for pee soup…That is something else entirely.
“It’s erm…Very green” my brain ventured.
“It’s pea soup, it’s supposed to be green” I responded.
“Yeah but…It’s very fricking green…” it’s whinging now.
“It’s pea soup…What other colour would you want it to be?” I whinged back.
“Well…I don’t know…Something more interesting…”
“There is nothing wrong with green” I muttered.
“…Like pink or orange or purple or blue or rainbow vomit!”
“…Rainbow what?…In fact don’t answer that, I don’t want to know”.
Can someone tell my brain that there is nothing wrong with green soup darn it!
1 tbsp olive oil
500g frozen peas
1 x onion
2 x cloves of garlic
2 x large carrots
2 pints of vegetable stock
Heat the oil in a pan (over a medium heat) and add the sliced onion and carrots…
Once the onions and carrots have started to soften add the crushed garlic and frozen peas…
Then cook for another 5 minutes…
Add the stock and bring to the boil…
Once it has done this reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Then blitz and serve!
Add a bit a black pepper or fresh chillies for a bit of heat!
This is another soup that I portioned out and froze for a weeks worth of lunches for work…It is definitely helping me stick to a healthier diet! The soup keeps me fuller and less likely to break into the vending machine to rescue a packet of crisps and a chocolate bar.
PS – ‘Fortitude‘ episode 7 tonight folks…Anyone else keeping up with this series? My word, episode 6 was immense!
