Coming up, the most delicious pea soup recipe ever!
I love soup, it is a quick, cheap, easy meal and a great way to use up vegetables that may be a little past their best. There is nothing better than knowing your soup contains only good natural ingredients.
I discovered this amazing Pea soup recipe recently, I promise you it is delicious! It is sweet and very filling and probably the easiest soup you will ever make. The photo doesn’t do it justice…it is actually a bright green colour when made.
- 450g frozen peas (I use petit pois)
- 2 chopped onions
- Handful of mint leaves
- Handful of parsley
- 700ml vegetable stock
- 50g butter *
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Natural yogurt *
- Put the peas, onions, parsley, mint and stock in a saucepan with the stock, bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 minutes.
- To serve, add the butter* and seasoning, then blend the soup until smooth.
- Serve with a swirl of natural yogurt for extra creaminess.
There is an even easier way to make this pea soup though. My favourite new gadget is the Morphy Richards Soup Maker that I have been reviewing. I have to admit it was not something high on my priorities of purchases to make, after all it is not difficult to make soup, even smooth soup if you have a blender. However, I eat my words, the soup maker is brilliant, I love it. No transferring hot liquid to a blender is just one of the bonuses.
It is another appliance to make room for, but it’s not huge. It is a bit larger than my kettle and I have tucked it away in a corner so that is easily accessible without me having to scrabble around in cupboards every time I want to use it.
For a quick vegetable soup simply chop your choice of vegetables (approx 700g) up and fill the soup maker up to the 1300ml (min) mark, top up with water or stock to the 1600ml (max) level. Pop the lid on and choose either a smooth soup, or chunky soup and leave the machine to do it’s job. It takes just 21 minutes to make a smooth soup and 28 minutes to make a chunky soup.
I made a delicious clear vegetable soup that the family loved with just carrots, celery, onion, peas and green beans. The next day I reheated the soup and added some cooked chopped leftover beef for a filling lunch.
I also made butternut squash soup, I made it using the smooth soup function but I think next time I will try the chunky function and then use the blend button afterwards as I wasn’t sure the texture was right, it felt a bit too smooth.
The soup maker is extremely easy to clean but can’t be submerged into water, there are no fiddly bits to dismantle, I literally use a brush and some soapy watery inside the machine and wipe the blade clean with a cloth.
My children have been versed how to use it, it is so easy.
As you can see the buttons are very easy to understand, there are no complicated instructions. Choose which mode you want, press select and then your soup starts cooking. A beep will alert you when it is done. My only teeny tiny criticism is there isn’t a keep warm function.
The soup maker can also be used to make smoothies and milkshakes.
