I love my food.
I love good food, and that doesn’t mean unhealthy food. Although I do like some unhealthy food, but I eat a lot less of it these days.
Now that it’s getting cold and dark in Queensland I have found myself craving soup and there is nothing better than getting in from a run and having a nice bowl of soup. It reminds me of being in the UK on the wintry nights. I put a soup recipe by Bellaxthree on here a while back which I still make in batches and love, but I saw another one the other day that Amy who writes the blog Thoroughly Nourished posted. It’s a great Pea soup recipe and I am intending on making it this weekend.
I’ve listed the basics here but you can see the full post on Thoroughly Nourished’s website.
Pea Soup – makes two servings
1 1/2 cups frozen peas
1/2 large zucchini, diced
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 small brown onion, diced
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 cup vegetable stock
Put all ingredients into a large saucepan and bring to the boil.
Simmer for 15 minutes or until peas are cooked through.
Remove from the heat and blend to desired consistency.
Serve with crackers or crusty bread.
I think this soup will freeze well so might double the batch.
