Method

  1. Thinly slice the spring onions, reserving some of the green tops for garnish. Heat the butter, fry the spring onions for 1 min until slightly softened. Add the peas and stock, then bring to the boil.
  2. Simmer for 5 mins, then whizz half the soup in a food processor. Return to the pan with the crème fraîche. Reheat gently, taste and add pepper, and salt if it needs it. Ladle into small bowls or cups and saucers, then sprinkle with the reserved spring onion tops.

A really fab soup. Made it while I had breakfast this morning and took it to work in a flask for lunch. Can't believe something so quick and easy could be so good!

I'm off sick pregnant with a cold. Needed quick non-tiring nourishment. This has hit the spot. Really good. Really quick. I feel nourished. I didn't have minted peas. Didn't matter. Still yummy. Thanks. I feel the vitamin c working it's magic already.

Delicious, simple and healthy!! I make this to take to work almost every day for lunch. Surprisingly filling, while still being light.

Delicious, cheap, quick, healthy and filling! I used 5 spring onions, 2 stock cubes, fresh mint and added some leftover celery to use it up. Would go well with toasted ciabatta rubbed with garlic.

After having been snowed in today, hardly had anything in house, but made this really great soup! Just used evaporated milk and added some bacon, REALLY yummy! Thanks for ideas...
