6a01156fa075f4970c0134853297c3970cHaving made another batch of this ‘soopah’ soup (all ingredients fresh from the garden just an hour ago!), I thought it only fair to share, so here’s the recipe:

  • Butter for frying
  • 1 tbsn olive oil
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 250 g courgettes, trimmed and chopped
  • 750 ml chicken or veg stock
  • 250 g shelled peas
  • Handful fresh mint leaves chopped.
  • Melt butter in large pan, add oil.
  • Add all chopped veg, season, cover and cook until soft (about 10 mins).
  • Add stock, simmer for 5 mins and add peas.
  • Cook for further 15 mins.
  • Stir in chopped mint.
  • Blend until smooth and season to taste.
  • Good hot or cold and you can add a little cream, crème fraiche or yoghurt to serve.
