  • 1bunch spring onions, chopped
  • 1large potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1l vegetable stock
  • 250g frozen peas
  • 100g fresh spinach
  • 300ml natural yogurt
  • few mint leaves, basil leaves, cress or a mixture, to serve


  • STEP 1

    Put the spring onions, potato and garlic into a large pan. Pour over the vegetable stock and bring to the boil.

  • STEP 2

    Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 mins with a lid on or until the potato is soft enough to mash with the back of a spoon.

  • STEP 3

    Add the peas and bring back up to a simmer. Scoop out around 4 tbsp of the peas and set aside for the garnish.

  • STEP 4

    Stir the spinach and yogurt into the pan, then carefully pour the whole mixture into a blender or use a stick blender to blitz it until it’s very smooth. Season to taste with black pepper.

  • STEP 5

    Ladle into bowls, then add some of the reserved cooked peas and scatter over your favourite soft herbs or cress. Serve with crusty bread, if you like.
