Pea & Coconut Soup

If you read my Summer pretences post you will remember me talking about those chilly summer nights. So today I Decided to visit the local farmers stall and create a summer Inspired soup. Pea Kale and Coconut soup, yummy. This dish can also be thickened up and eaten as a thick and creamy dip (hummus like) with crusty bread as a BBQ starter.

Serves 4

  • 300 g of peas 
  • 150 ml coconut cream or milk
  • 1 small sweet onion, minced
  • 2 large courgettes

  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch of green scallions, chopped (green and white parts)

  • 1 bunch of fresh Coriander

  • 1 bunch of fresh basil

  • 1 bunch of fresh Coriander

  • 2 pinches of Sea salt and pepper
  • 1 green chilli (Only If you'd like a little warmth)
  • extra virgin olive oil to serve
  • Freshly ground pepper, to serve
  • Microgreens, to serve (to be fancy)

 

  1. Boil your peas into soft and drain
  2.  Work your peas into the coconut cream over a low heat, thickening up the mixture Until smooth.
  3. Fry your onions in a large hot pan, Until soft
  4. add your scallions, shallots, celery and fresh herbs salt and pepper stirring often, until ingredients have softened.
  5. Add your fried greens into your coconut cream and pea mixture making sure to keep the heat low as not to loosen the mixture (If the mixture becomes too thick add water)
  6. Serve Immediately and dress with group pepper a swirl of extra virgin olive oil and pretty micro greens
