After being so ill at the end of 2018 I am now desperately trying to get as many fruits and vegetables into my diet as possible to build my immune system. One good way to do this is soups, I am not the biggest fan of smoothies even though they are an excellent way to get your daily allowance but actually soups also do a very good job.
One of my favourites is pea soup as it is so easy and quick and healthy. So here is my recipe and how I make it, this makes about 2 portions:
You will need:
Celery – 3 stalks
Spinach – half a large bag
Onions – 1 whole red onion
Peas (of course) – 1/3 of a bag
Salt – pinch
Pepper – pinch
Paprika (not essential) – pinch
Chop up of your celery and onion
Add them, spinach and peas to a pan with about half a cup of water
Cook in the pan until boiled adding in your salt, pepper and paprika to taste. Then place in a blender for about 30 seconds to a 1 minute. I like my soup quite textured so I don’t blend until completely smooth.
One blended place in a bowl add some mint sauce, smile optional but makes it more fun 🙂
Hopefully you will enjoy my recipe and tuck into this lovely soup. I would love to see your pictures and hear what you think.
