I don’t seem to post recipes that often anymore as I have been a bit slack and been wondering into the shops recipe-less with no idea of what I am planning on cooking. Last night I did this Courgette, Pea and Mint soup with seed loaf and it was delicious and so healthy. Here’s the recipe for those who are interested.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, peeled and chopped
1 medium sweet potato diced (it’s says peeled too, but I didn’t bother with this)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
6 medium courgettes, roughly chopped
800ml veg or chicken stock
3 cups frozen peas
¼ cup chopped fresh mint
2 tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice (I used lemon)
½ cup fat-free plain yoghurt (I used Bulgarian as there was no plain)
A generous pinch of black pepper, salt and sugar
1 – Heat oil in large pot with onion, potato, garlic and courgettes. Fry for 3 min.
2 – Add stock and simmer for 10 min.
3 – Add peas and simmer for 3 minutes, then remove from heat. Add mint, lemon and yoghurt. Allow to cool and then blend. Add S+P and sugar to taste.
4 – Reheat and serve with fresh bread
