Lovely Buttery Veges, Well Seasoned, some Water and Voila Summer Green Soup

It’s Sunday, I decided that I didn’t want to go to the supermarket.
End of week… so use up vege in the fridge
I was reading Nigel Slater’s Kitchen Diaries and he is inspirational,
It was his phrase, “There’s something jolly about peas boiling”

I just got up, mid sentence
I knew I had frozen peas, then
Looked in the fridge and I have made the “bestest” soup

2 tablespoon butter
1 med potato chopped
3 spring onions chopped
3 courgettes chopped
1 cup frozen peas
1 tablespoon Vegeta vegetable stock
8-10 mint leaves
Salt, freshly ground black pepper  and a pinch of sugar

Sauté potatoes in butter
Add Vegeta and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Stir make sure well covered in the melted butter

Add a little water and let reduce for about 5 minutes
Add courgettes, spring onions

Sauté again about 5 minutes

Add peas, sauté about 5 minutes
Add enough water, just to cover
Add sugar,
Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary
Bring to boil and simmer about 10 minutes
Add chopped mint


This was so good, it’s a keeper, will make it again
