Curried PEAce Soup

This is my favourite winter warming soup and inspired by my mates blog about winter coming in (mathildeheartmanech) i’ve decided to post this recipe.  It’s a family hand me down and very tasty.

You need:

1 onion, chopped

1/2 a leek, sliced

1 small stick of celery, sliced/chopped

About 2/3 mug fulls of frozen peas

1 veg or chicken stock cube

1/2 tablespoons of mild curry powder (depending on how spicy you like it)

Salt and pepper to taste

Boiling water

Instructions:

Sweat off the onion, leek and celery for about ten min or until soft and translucent (i nuke mine for a bout 6/7 min, but you can do this in a pan with some oil).

Add the curry powder and fry for a min or so.

Add the peas.  Stir.

Add some boiling water to just over covering the mixture and crumble in a stock cube.

Simmer for five min.

Blitz with a hand blender or liquidise. Push through a sieve to get rid of any lumpy bits and pea skins. Bring back to simmer.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Add a touch of cream or creme fraiche for extra indulgence but just as nice without it.

Serve.

Yum, yum and very healthy (minus the cream!)
