Courgette, Pea & Mint Soup

Courgette, Pea & Mint Soup

This fresh soup works equally well warm or cold. It's a great way to use courgettes at the bottom of your fridge that are getting a bit soft.

Ingredients

2 small courgettes, thinly sliced

1 small onion, chopped

300 grams frozen peas

500 milliletres vegetable stock (top up with water to cover if necessary)

4 tablespoon olive oil

Pinch of salt

Handful of mint, torn

Handful of watercress, torn

Method

1.    Put the oil into a pan on a medium heat. 

2.    Saute the onion until soft, but without colour, then add the courgettes, season and cook for about five minutes.

3.    Stir in the peas, add the stock, boil, then simmer for a few minutes. 

4.    Check the seasoning, blend the mixture, thinning it with water if necessary.

5.    If you want the soup cold, pour it into a bowl over some ice to chill quickly, then refrigerate. 

6.    Garnish with the mint, watercress a little olive oil and some dairy-free cream if you like.
