Pea, celery and mint soup

‘Pea, celery and mint soup’ is a seasonal and healthy recipe that I concocted at a recent Healthy Cooking Club with children aged 6 to 9 and I post it here ahead of the next session tomorrow because it has all the attributes I want my spring dishes to have: It is seasonal and healthy all right, but also light and warming at the same time and, more importantly, it is GREEN (my favourite colour). But let’s not forget its most endearing quality: you already have most of its ingredients in your cupboard and freezer, if not in your fridge!

 Ingredients:

  • Olive oil 1 tbsp,
  • 2 small chopped onions
  •  sea salt
  • garden peas 500g (frozen is fine)
  • celery, 3 stalks chopped
  • handful of mint
  • water

 Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the chopped onion and stir with a wooden spoon.

 Add the peas, celery and 1 cup of water. Cover and bring to a boil.

Add enough water  (500ml) to cover the vegetables and season with a little salt.

Bring to a boil and simmer until the vegetables are cooked : 15 minutes should suffice.

Stir in the mint, liquidize and serve.

  1. Will do it tonight. I’m a soup fan, always looking for new recipes, curious to taste yours – my pea soup has no celery, but now you mention it, it seems so obvious! xx

  2. Unusual combo but I can see how it works (plus it sounds really healthy)

    • It is so healthy it is inspired from a Macrobiotic recipe and the plus is everybody likes it. Even the kids! Hope you like too. Thanks for your visit.
