Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil (olive, vegetable, rapeseed or coconut oil all work well)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 celery stalks, finely sliced
  • 400 g (2 2/3 cups) fresh green peas
  • 1 zucchini (courgette), roughly chopped
  • 1 vegetable stock cube (ensure gluten-free if necessary)
  • Few sprigs of fresh mint, to taste
  • Salt + pepper, to taste

To serve*:

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large pan and add the onion, garlic and celery once hot
  • Cook on a low heat, stirring occasionally until soft (about 10 minutes)
  • Once the onions etc have softened, add the green peas, zucchini and vegetable stock cube and enough water to cover
  • Bring to the boil then simmer on a low heat for 15-20 minutes until all vegetables are cooked through (zucchini should be soft enough to easily pierce with a fork)
  • Turn off the heat, add the mint and use a hand-held stick blender to blend until it becomes a smooth liquid (add some more water if it’s too thick at this stage) - you can alternatively use a food processor or blender
  • Taste and add salt and pepper to taste
  • Serve into bowls, top with more fresh mint, ground black pepper and nutritional yeast
  • Leftovers keep well covered in the fridge for up to a few days - just reheat in a pan with extra water if necessary. This soup also freezes well

Notes

*Another delicious topping would be pesto! Here is my favourite vegan pesto recipe and my favourite vegan sundried tomato pesto recipe!
