We have eaten this easy and delicious pea soup – made with frozen peas – at my mum’s a few times lately. It is delicious and really cheap to make. So I prised the recipe from her and here it is!
My mum’s pea soup
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion
1 stick of celery
550 g frozen peas
800 ml vegetable or chicken stock
2 tbsp chopped mint or basil
8 tbsp mascarpone cheese (optional)
Fry the onion and celery in the oil for 5 minutes until softened. Add the stock and to the boil. Pour in the peas, bring back to the boil and cook for around 5-10 minutes. Add the herbs and season to taste. Blitz in a blender and serve.
You can add 8 tbsp of mascarpone with the herbs to this pea soup, which makes it very rich and creamy, but I didn’t have any and it was nice without.
This is such an easy recipe for pea soup. If you try it, I hope you love it as much as we do. For more of my favourite frugal recipes, click here.
