Pea and Lettuce Soup Recipes

Ingredients :

2 lb (1kg) peas in their pods

2 tbsp vegetable oil

2 medium herbs, trimmed, washed and cut into 1/2 inch (12-mm) pieces

2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch (12-mm) pieces

1/2 tsp sugar

4 cups (32 fl oz / 1 L) vegetable stock

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 head iceberg (web) lettuce, trimmed and chopped

1/3 cup (3 fl oz / 90ml) crème fraiche

1 tbsp chopped chives, for garnish

Method :

Remove peas from pods and discard pods. Warm oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add leeks and potatoes and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add peas, sugar and stock. Increase heat to bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low until liquid is at a steady simmer. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Stir in lettuce, cover and cook until potatoes are tender, about 3 minutes.

Pour soup into a large bowl. Working in batches, ladle soup into a food processor and process until smooth, about 30 seconds. Return soup to saucepan and stir over low heat until heated through, about 3 minutes.

Serve in heated bowls, topping each serving with crème fraiche and chives.

Serves 4-6
