MMM!

MMM!

Yesterday, I made this glorious winning served cold fresh pea mint soup! I made it with every ingredient from my garden,….except the vegan gluten-free stock, of course! I podded 750 gr fresh peas from the garden yesterday, but just used 400 gr of them! Just look at these beauties:

The mint in the soup is just right & first you taste the fresh mint & then the lovely fresh pea flavor! I served it with some freshly chopped mint leaves, not too much though & some dollops of vegan gluten-free soy cream. Join me for some cold yummy soup, will you?

Recipe: For 1700 ml soup

Ingredients:

3 fat spring onions, cleaned, pad dry & cut up into rounds, white & green parts

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely chopped

2 smaller stalks of fresh green celery, cleaned, pad dry & cut up finely. (Leaves not used in here, use it in an omelet or so!)

1/3 peeled sweet potato, cut up into smaller chunks

400 gr fresh podded peas, rinsed & drained

11 gr fresh Moroccan mint leaves, washed, pad dry, stalks removed, leaves torn

1 teaspoon vegan gluten-free stock paste

1700 ml just boiled water

black pepper: 25 grins

Maldon sea salt: 1/2 teaspoon or less depending on the saltness of your stock paste!

Extra: 2 gr fresh mint leaves

9 water ice-blocks

a fruity evoo

To serve: 2 mint leaves, per soup bowl ,finely cut up with scissors & some dollops of soy cream

Method:

1. Take a soup pot & add some drizzles of that fruity evoo. Heat up on medium heat. When hot, add chopped garlic, spring onion & celery. Fry for about 4 minutes, stirring often. Now, add podded peas, 11 gr of chopped mint leaves & sweet potato pieces. Fry for about 5 minutes or so. Stir often. Add some more oil if you need to. Now, add your stock paste & 1700 ml of boiling water & stir everything round into the pot. Bring to the boil & let it boil for about 8 minutes or until your veggies are just al dente. taste. I added 25 grins of black pepper in total & about 1/2 teaspoon Maldon sea salt.

2. I added 9 ice blocks to my soup to cool it down more easily. I vitamixed my soup & tasted it again. Then, I added the 2 gr of mint leaves raw into the soup. I vitamixed it one more time & tasted it & it was just right. Pour the soup in a soup container & place into the fridge to cool down completely. I waited a few hours. This is more of a thicker soup. To serve: Ladle your cold soup into lovely soup bowls & scatter your 2 finely shredded mint leaves in the middle of the surface of each soup. Pour some dollops of cold soy cream around it & with a fork, make some lines into the dots! Serve at once! You can also serve the cold pea soup into lovely apΓ©ro glasses to enjoy it at a party! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy, my sweeties! πŸ™‚ xxxΒ

    That’s good exercise, podding all those peas πŸ™‚
    I grew up on pea soup (with fat rookwurst!), being a Dutchie, but have never actually tried cold pea soup. Great way to keep enjoying my favourite soup in the Summer weather! Love the sound of fresh Moroccan mint leaves.

  11. YUMMY Sophie! Send some over here! πŸ˜› We’ve never tried growing peas but sounds like we should! πŸ™‚ Such a tasty sounding recipe… and I have frozen peas so that’s one excuse out of the window! I often make a hot pea soup (can’t recall if I posted that or not)! – but this definitely looks worth a try! πŸ™‚ Thank you! x
