Serenity Mint Pea Soup
Sometimes it’s the simple, effortless blends that are the most rewarding. This is a well loved favourite that came into being during a week long intensive retreat I was catering for a few years back in Snowdonia. Everyone was eating so much food, that I needed to created an extra tasty, health yet filling dish with 15 minutes to spare. I quickly scanned the kitchen for whatever was available and Serenity Mint Pea Soup divinely wove itself into being! It has been a firm favourite ever since. This recipe was first published in my book Trinity’s Conscious Kitchen. Enjoy and please do feel free to share and let me know how you get on.
- 1 large potato
- 900g fresh or frozen garden peas
- 50g creamed coconut block
- Large handful of fresh garden mint (or 1 heaped tablespoon of dried spearmint)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 700ml spring water
InstructionsChop potato (leave skin on) into small chunks.Boil potato with salt, in a large cooking pot. Use enough water to just cover their tops, boiling until soft enough to pierce with a fork. This should take no more than 10 minutes.Add frozen peas and bring back to the boil, adding the rest of the water.Roughly chop coconut block and add to the peas, whilst the pot comes back to the boil.Add mint.Simmer for a few minutes once it has come back to the boil.Blend thoroughly with a hand blender directly in the pan until nice and creamy, adding more water if the mixture is too thick for you.
- Use a 400ml tin of good quality, organic, coconut milk instead of coconut block and omit 600ml of water from the original ingredient list. Or used 200ml of coconut cream and leave out 200ml of water from the recipe. Then create as above.
