Successful Soup

My third successful soup (after the potato and leek, and the pumpkin and sweet potato) was one I made the other night. Pea soup. No ham. I don’t do ham. It was very easy, and I reckon you could freeze it after you blended it smooth and then add in the whole peas once it had defrosted. Anyway, in case you want to try it out…

INGREDIENTS

1 tbsp olive oil
1 large brown onion, chopped finely
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 medium white potatoes, cubed
1.5 litres chicken or vegetable stock
500g frozen peas
1/3 cup cream
Salt

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until soft. Add potato and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

Add stock and bring to the boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add half the peas and cook, stirring, for 7 to 8 minutes.

Blend soup mixture in $4 food processor from Hervey Bay Op-Shop until smooth. Return to pan. Add remaining peas and cream and cook for 4 minutes or until peas are tender. Season with salt to taste.

  1. Made the pea soup this afternoon. Very nice. Identical expect I don’t have a food processor. Tasted good all the same. Did you post the other two recipes? I like potato and sweet potato.
