Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 500 g frozen peas
  • 200 g potatoes, about 1 large potato (peeled weight), cut into 1-2cm cubes, note 1
  • 4 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, chopped, note 2
  • 650 mls vegetable stock, note 3
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add the olive oil to a large pan and heat up on medium heat. Add the chopped onions and garlic and saute for 5 minutes until the onion is translucent.
  • Add the peas, potatoes and vegetable stock, stir well, then bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low, then simmer for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are tender and cooked through. Stir in the mint.
  • Allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes, then carefully transfer the mixture into a blender, working in batches if necessary. Blend until smooth. Taste test - add more mint if you like it minty. Season with salt and pepper. Return to the pan to heat up before serving.
  • Enjoy the soup hot with a slice of crusty bread. Garnish with extra mint if you wish.

Recipe Notes

  1. Potatoes - cutting them into small even cubes ensures they cook quickly and evenly.
  2. Mint - adjust the mint accordingly depending on taste.
  3. Vegetable stock - either homemade or store-bought. We use a stock cube for convenience, but you could also use vegetable stock from a carton.

Storage

This soup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, covered. Reheat on the stovetop and add a little water or vegetable stock if necessary to thin it out.
The soup will last in the freezer for up to 3 months.
