My Easy Pea-sy Soup

As a relatively cheap and readily accessible vegetable, frozen peas are one of my staple freezer ingredients. Whether I chuck them in with risotto or quinoa, sprinkle them over a salad or blend them into a thick, delicious soup there is never a dull moment for me when peas are involved.

 I have never been a great maker of soups, but I don’t know why. They are healthy, cheap and unbelievably easy to make, it seems silly not to. Having recently experimented with different recipes, I have found that many online are full of cream, milk and/or crème fraiche. Wanting to opt for a light, fresh and healthier version of this traditional favourite, I have tried and tested a few recipes to create my perfect, easy ‘pea-sy’ pea soup.

Try it out for yourself and let me know how you get on!
