Weigh the peas after shelling. Ham stock gives a good flavor to the soup. Halve the quantity of peas if you are using dried peas.

- 1 spring onions
- 25g [1 oz] butter
- salt and pepper

1 Chop the onions. Melt the butter in the saucepan, sweat peas and onions in butter for 10 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.

2 Season and pour on stock
. Bring to simmering point, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are quite tender.

3 Reduce contents of pan to a puree using a vegetable mill, sieve or liquidizer.

4 Return soup to pan. Stir in mint and reheat.

Variations

  • Use drained, canned peas and only 550ml [1 pt] liquid, including some of the liquid from the can for additional flavour.
