Method

  1. Tip the peas and potatoes into a large saucepan, then pour in the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins, until the potato chunks are tender. Meanwhile, grill the fish fingers as per pack instructions until cooked through and golden. Cut into bitesize cubes and keep warm.
  2. Take a third of the peas and potatoes out of the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Blend the rest of the soup until smooth, then stir in the pesto with the reserved vegetables. Heat through and serve in warm bowls with the fish finger croûtons on top.

Surprisingly, this was very, very tasty and I was so pleased with how it had turned out. Will definitely be making again. I didn't do the fishfinger croutons part...but will try this next time. We ate ours with some homemade bread and it went down really well with my six year old...but he wants it with fishfingers next time!

Really lovely - I whizzed the whole lot up rather than have lumpy bits (picky kids) and my 19 month old wolfed it down, complete with the fish fingers - delicious!

Very very good - fish finger croutons are amazing and work really well. You may need a touch more water though, it is a little thick (not thick enough to eat with a fork though).

Waited until we were babysitting my niece for an excuse to make this - won't bother waiting until we babysit again - it was fab!

The nutritional serving is fo rper serving ... but it doesn't mention anywhere on the page how many servings it provides! (Apologies if I have indeed missed it somewhere!).
Does anybody know how many servings it does using the ingredients instructed to use?
Would it be possible for somebody to place the serving amounts on this page?

Thank you! :)

this is the first ever recipe I tried from the magazine, its gorgeous, with or without the fish fingers. It works just as well with red pesto (but doesn't look quite so nice!)

one of our favourite midweek meals. Quick to make and incredably filling

This is one of my favourites! The pesto really compliments the peas and my little one loves the idea of slimey green witches brew soup with fishy dippers!

Love this soup, so easy to make I even made it before work one morning. I often have it for lunch as it's really filling. Everyone that has tried it loved it!

i didn't have any green pesto so substituted it with good quality mint sauce instead and make it this way all the time now.

Very simple, quick and tasty, popular with my family including children.
I always start with an onion, fry it very gently until just soft, before I add the other ingredients.
Yummy!

This is delicious, with or without the fish fingers.

This was easy and very yummy. Make loads and freeze. An easy dinner is just a reheat and grilling of fish fingers away !!

This soup is delicious, the addition of fish fingers as croutons is a great idea which turns the soup in to a filling main meal
