Green pea soup

This is one of my favourite soups! I love the beautiful green colour, that it only takes a couple of minutes to cook, and of course the lovely taste. And it is very filling too. I prefer to have some nice bread and maybe some cheese with soup, but you don’t actually need it with this one. We had some nice cake for dessert instead.

If you add some white wine, this soup is known as creme ninon, and it is even more fabulous. Perfect for dinner parties. But on a weeknight, the below recipe is great.

Green pea soup, serves 2

about 400 g frozen peas

water

a pinch of salt

1 dl single cream

a splash of concentrated vegetable stock

salt & white pepper

Pour the peas into a pan and just about cover them with water, add the salt and bring to a boil. Let them boil for a few minutes, then blotz it smooth with a mixer, pour back into the pan and add the cream, stock, salt and pepper (and the wine), bring to a boil and serve.
