Sweet Pea Soup

Celery and zucchini make this pea soup a little less dense than a traditional pea soup.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  •  1 large celery stalk, diced
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups sweet peas
  • salt and pepper, and a dash of cumin or chilli flakes

Directions:

  1. In a medium soup pot, over medium heat, saute onion and garlic until translucent. DON’T burn the garlic. Add celery and zucchini and cook 5 -7 minutes until softened.
  2. Add chicken stock, turn heat to high and bring to a boil. Add peas and turn heat back to medium-high. Cook for 15 minutes until peas are softened. Let cool.
  3. Once cooled completely, puree soup and then season again before serving.
  4. Serves four as lunch or dinner, with a side of meat or fish.
