I just love Deliciously Ella’s new cookbook – we can’t get enough of all her amazingly healthy and delicious recipes. Last weekend I prepared this simple but scrummy soup for a dinner party and it went down a storm. It is so important to eat healthily this time of year to keep your blood rich and energy levels high and this lovely thick, warming soup is just ideal.
Pea and Mint Soup (Serves 4)
- 5 mugs of peas (750g)
- 3.5 mugs of vegetable stock
- 1 x 400g tin cannellini beans
- 12 sprigs of fresh mint
- salt and pepper
Place the peas and stock in a large saucepan and begin to heat gently.
Cook until the peas begin to boil, which should take about 10 mins.
Take off the heat and mix the peas and stock with the cannellini beans and the mint leaves in a blender until the soup is smooth and creamy.
Finally, heat the soup in a pan for a few minutes, season and serve!
