The humble pea, as part of the standard Australian meat and three veg diet I think I’ve eaten tonnes of them over the years, which is exactly why most people see them as a boil and eat boring veg. Here’s why they aren’t.
easy to freeze also.
This is amazingly simple and delicious. Put a saucepan on a medium heat, pour in about 4tb of olive oil, throw in the garlic and a pinch of salt, stir and bring to a transparency.
Throw in the peas and stir so they’re all coated, add a few grinds of black pepper, give it a good 5 minutes. Pour in the chicken (or vegetable) stock and simmer gently for about 10-15 minutes, until the peas are cooked but not mushy.
Throw in half the mint and cream/milk if using, stir well then transfer to blender and blend to a soup consistency, mind the lid if using a blender because of the steam. Taste to check seasoning then pour into bowls accompanied by a nice piece of bread and the rest of the mint sprinkled on top.
