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


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.


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