Time for a Cup of...{Soup}

It’s time for a Cup of…soup! Yes, thick and creamy, but healthy! I played around with a few easy-to-find ingredients – some of them you might have in your kitchen, other you’ll quickly have to pop into Pick n Pay to get the necessary goodies!

I have two favourite soup recipes: Butternut soup and Peas soup. Last winter I think I overindulged a bit on the butternut side, so this winter I’ll start with a Peas Soup Recipe!

Here’s what you’ll need:
2 grated potatoes
5 tsp vegetable stock
1,750 ml water
700g peas – I used slightly defrosted peas
4 heaped tsp Thai Pesto
Salt & Pepper to taste
On medium heat in a large pot, dissolve vegetable stock in 250ml water. Add grated potatoes. Add the rest of the water. Add slightly defrosted peas. Put the lid on and let it boil for 10 minutes. Then add Thai Pesto and boil for another 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Take the pot off the stove and pour the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth texture. Pour the mixture back into the pot and let it simmer for 25-30 minutes or until the soup thickens. Add salt and pepper to taste.
*Extra: Pepperdew & Feta side:
Drain 8-10 pepperdews, stuff them with Feta. In a small casserole cook them on 190*C for 15 minutes in a Raspberry & Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar.
Can be used as a tasty side dish or you can use it as garnish.
