Pea, courgette + mint soup

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
