My mum’s pea soup (easy peasy!)


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

Serves 4


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)


pea soup

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.

  1. I used to make gallons of pea soup in the slow cooker using died split peas. It was divine!

    You can also use potato instead of the more expensive mascarpone and I also like to throw in about 100g of watercress into my pea soup.

    Pea and watercress soup is also good served cold on hot summer days.
