Chilled Pea & Mint Soup
This fresh chilled version of our Easy Peasy Soup is a refreshing taste of summer.
Allow enough time for the soup to get properly cold, and serve topped with a swirl of double cream and some fresh mint leaves.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, peeled and diced
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and diced
400g frozen or fresh peas
800ml vegetable stock
1 tbsp chopped mint
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Select the SAUTE function, add the oil and allow to heat. Add the onion and celery and fry for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and peas and SAUTE stirring for 1 minute then add the stock. Cancel the SAUTE function. To save time you can leave the sauté step out, but we would recommend using this feature to maximise flavour.
Put the lid on and select SMOOTH function.
When the program has reached 2 minutes remaining lift the lid and add the mint, replace the lid and allow the programme to finish, open the lid and pour soup into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours then season to taste before serving.
