Green Pea Soup

Serves: 4
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min

Ingredients

• 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
• 1 ts fresh ginger, finely chopped 
• 2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
• 2 tbsp butter or olive oil for frying
• 8 dl chicken/vegetarian stock or water and a bullion 
• 600g fresh or frozen green peas
• 1 dl cream 
• 3 springs of spring onion
• ½ ts pepper
• ½ ts salt
• ½ rosemary

Directions

Melt the butter and fry the onion, ginger and garlic until it is soft, about 5 minutes. Then add the stock, salt, pepper and rosemary and let it boil for another 3-4 minutes. Add the peas and bring to a boil. Pour in the cream and use a blender until as smooth as you want it. If the soup is a bit thick add in some more water or stock, if it is too watery let it boil without a lid for a while. Add the chopped spring onion a couple of minutes before serving.

Tip: Want to make the soup a bit more filling? Add a  boiled egg, a dash of sour cream or crispy bacon.

Fry the onions until they are soft. If you have time to fry it until caramelized even better.
Taste the peas. If they are unfrozen and soft they are ready to be blended.
Blend the soup as chunky or as fine as you want it.
