This recipe came about because Dwayne wanted peas with his roast chicken. What…? It is simple really, we don’t have a freezer at the moment but had to buy 500 grams of frozen peas to go with the roast chicken dinner we cooked the night before. Therefore, we had 3.5 cups of defrosted peas to use… hence green pea soup. It is so simple and easy to make and, believe it or not, it is delicious.
1 onion, finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon of oil
3 1/2 cups of frozen green peas, defrosted
2 cups of chicken stock
1 teaspoon of dried tarragon
Cream to serve (optional)
Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the garlic and onion, cook slowly for 3 to 5 minutes to soften.
Add the green peas, stock and tarragon and cook for 10 minutes.
Place peas in a food processor and process until smooth.
Pour the soup into bowls and add a little cream.
