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
Water
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
Blitz

Serve

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