Ingredients

  • 4 leeks , finely sliced
  • 25g butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 400ml vegetable or chicken stock
  • 500g frozen peas
  • 4 spring onions , finely sliced

Method

  • STEP 1

    Gently soften the leeks in butter and oil in your largest pan for 15-20 mins until almost meltingly soft. You can soften the leeks up to a day ahead, then just reheat in the pan before continuing the recipe. Stir in the stock, bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins. Stir in the peas and spring onions for 3-5 mins more until the peas are defrosted and cooked through, then season and serve.
