Petite Peas and Mint Soup

Category: , ,

The original recipe was for Broad beans and mint soup, I couldn't find Broad beans in Safeway and QFC so used Petite Peas instead. Tastes good but I am still curious to taste broad beans and mint soup :)

2 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 potatoes diced
450 g petite peas or broad beans
850 ml vegetable stock
2 tbsp freshly chopped mint
salt and pepper
fresh mint sprigs and yogurt to garnish

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and saute the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes until softened.

2. Add the potatoes and cook for 5 minutes, stirring well. Stir in the peas(or broad beans) and the stock, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until the peas and potatoes are tender.

3. Reserving a few vegetables place the remainder of the soup in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.

4. Return the soup to a clean saucepan and add the reserved vegetables and mint. Serve garnished with swirls of yogurt and sprigs of fresh mint.
