Pea and Potato soup

This soup wasn't planned but with the weather getting colder all the time and a phone call from the other-half stuck at work it gave me an hour to play with! It also came about as in a time of skint-ness last month I bought a bag of value frozen peas, which just were not tasty enough to serve in normal fashion!

Makes 4-5 bowls
25 minutes

1200ml boiling water
1 vegetable kallo bouillon cube
1/2 onion diced
460g frozen peas
450g baby new potatoes - preferably slightly old, diced
2 tbsp Parmesan
1 tbsp olive oil

1) Mix the stock cube with the boiling water, heat the oil in a large saucepan

2) Add the onion, fry for 3 minutes to give a little colour, add the potatoes and stock and simmer for 20 minutes

3) Add the peas and bring to boil, remove from heat, blitz with a stick blender or processor, stir in the Parmesan, season to taste and serve


This can be frozen in portions - it will look very peculiar but once heated it all 'comes together again' :-) It does lose a little of its vividness but is still acceptable!

  1. Your pea soup sounds good! A really good way to use the frozen peas.
