Pea, courgette & mint soup

Serves 6

The recipe seems to have come from a Waitrose magazine, but I’ve no idea of the date. I’ve adapted it somewhat.


1 tbsp olive oil
I onion, chopped
500g courgettes, chopped
300g frozen petit pois
1 litre stock
10g fresh mint (leaves only)
2.5 tbsp creme fraiche (6 tbsp single cream is in the original recipe)
freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat the oil and fry the onion until soft.
  2. Add the courgette and stir well. Leave to cook for a few minutes.
  3. Add the peas, pepper, and stock, bring to the boil, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Turn off the heat and add the mint and creme fraiche and stir.
  5. Blend until smooth, return to the saucepan and season to taste if necessary. You may also wish to heat the soup through to serve. Enjoy!

This recipe tastes even better made with vegetables from Community Harvest Whetstone :)
